Ypsilanti School Children Photos

Ypsilanti School Children

These photos, all from the Ypsilanti Historical Society, show late-nineteenth century black and white students. The first was identified as ‘The Class of 1890, 1885.’ The woman on the bottom left was identified as Wealtha Sherman, a community leader for nearly seven decades in Ypsilanti born in the fugitive  Queen’s Bush settlement of Canada and the inspiration for the building of Brown Chapel. The other two photos, clearly from two different dates, are not identified. These are big files and the faces can be viewed up close, do you know who these children are?
