Dear Joyce,
        The Elmira graduation photo I sent you has been identified as School # 4 in Elmira, circa 1890. I found the Mrs. Brown - the teacher in the photo -in the 1890-1893 Elmira City Directories. She is listed  in the Directory as Cora M. Brown, teacher school # 4. One of the students in the photo is listed  on the photo as Cora Brown. Perhaps she is Mrs. Brown's daughter.

        The following names were penciled in by Claude E. Toles on  the Elmira School # 4 photo:
