Mansfield High School Graduates

LISTINGS FROM THE 1938 MANSFIELD HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK , "MANSCRIPT" Prior to 1913, not a pupil had graduated from a four year high school course in Mansfield. The course was narrow and only the few who wanted to go on to college stayed for the new high school course. The enrollment was sixty four for four years of high school in 1914. In 1913 a class of three graduated in a three year course and in 1914, a class of seven in a four year course. Not all of the following addresses were verified. A question mark has been added in cases of extreme doubt. In a few instances, no information was available.

This information was taken from the 1938 school year book. Joyce M. Tice has added supplemental information.

We now have a local history museum in Mansfield representing the area in and naer Manfield.

Tioga Man Still Missing - Last Thursday Harold Brace, 74, of RD2 Tioga left his home on the Painter Run Road and walked to Tioga, a distance of about ten miles. Upon his failure to return home and unable to locate him in Tioga, search parties were called out Friday morning to conduct a ground and air search.  State Police from Mansfield were accompanied by about 40 volunteers from Tioga, Mansfield and Middlebury Township fire departments for an extensive ground search of the area. A state police helicopter also joined in the search from the air on Friday but was prevented by strong winds on Saturday to continue the air search. Reports on sighting Brace about 4 p.m. Friday near the Mill Creek bridge on Route 15 south of Tioga prompted State Police to call in a police search and rescue team with tracking dogs from Emporium. The dogs failed to find any new leads because of the steadily declining temperature on Saturday.  Saturday the volunteers and state police continued the ground search but called off further efforts after the day. Cpl. Kenneth Patterson said that Brace may have gone through the thin ice on the lake and that an air search would not be worthwhile until after the ice melts.  Brace was described as wearing gray work pants and a plaid sweat shirt. He is of thin build, six feet tall, weighing about 115 pounds, balding with some gray hair and he wears eyeglasses. He was described by police as being easily disoriented.

Divers Search Tioga Lake for Man Missing since March 25th - Four members of the State Police Area 2 Underwater Search Team spent part of the day Thursday, April 8, in the near-freezing waters of Tioga Lake near the Mill Creek bridge on Route 15 south of Tioga in an effort to find a Rutland Township man reported missing since March 25th.  Harold Brace, 74, of Painter Run Road, left his home on the morning of March 25th to walk the ten miles to Tioga. After he failed to return home, search crews combed the area on foot and by air on the following day.  Wearing water-tight “dry suits”, the four divers searched the lake bottom along the shoreline in the area where Brace may have been walking during his trek to Tioga. Visibility was hampered by winds whipping the water and the heavy flow of Mill Creek into the lake.  Taking part in the search were Bob McDonnell and Bill Dee, both of Troop R in Dunsmore. Bob Lipski of Troop S in Gibson, and Harold Witushynsky of Troop F Mansfield.  The State Police were aided in their efforts by two members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who provided a power boat.  An unopened six-pack of beer found along the bank of the lake recently led police to believe that Brace may have fallen through the ice. However, the four divers found nothing on Friday to indicate that Brace was in the lake.  Because of the poor visibility underwater, the men reported that it would have been very difficult to find anything in the lake. “I could see about two feet in front of me,” Lipski said.  Witushynsky said that they may search the lake again at a later date when the visibility is better. “There’s also the possibility of some fisherman finding the body after the season opens,” he noted.  The Underwater Search Team, started in 1973, has a total of six experienced SCUBA divers and covers a 22-county area in north-eastern Pennsylvania. The team is one of five dicing teams located throughout the state and, according to McDonnell, is kept busy most of the summer because of the relatively large number of rivers and lakes in the territory of Area 2.

Search Continues for Harold Brace - State Police conducted another aerial search in the Tioga area last Thursday in a continuing effort to locate Harold Brace who has been missing since March 25th. Brace, 74, left his Painter Run home to walk the ten miles to Tioga and has not been seen since. State Police divers searched portions of Tioga Lake on April 8 and they plan to search the lake again soon. Poor visibility under water hampered their first efforts and they want to make sure that Brace’s body is not in the lake. The State Police helicopter pilot accompanied by Cpl. Greg of Mansfield, reported seeing nothing during the search last week.  Ground searchers combed the area where they believed Brace to be lost on the day after he was reported missing.  SSDI- Harold Brace, b. 6 June 1907; d.
