Wilberforce University Catalog 1909-1910

If anyone is interested I have copies of several pages from the Student Catalogs for Wilberforce Univ. 1909-1910. Information contained is Name, Hometown, Field of Study, Classififcation.

In researching my grandfather's sister, Marie A. Adams, a student at Wilberforce during this period I discovered that she was a classmate
of the mother-in-law of my wife's sister...Rosalind Gertrude (Simpson) Jones (1891-1994), yep, she lived to be 103. She was from Irwin, Westmoreland County, PA.

Also in this class was my Sunday School teacher at Cyrene A.M.E. Church in Piqua, Ohio, Mrs. DeSoto Harris (1890-1975). Her maiden name was Clara B. Cochran and she was from St. Clairsville, Belmont County, OH.

There are other very interesting connections found in these pages, but these two really demostrate the inter-connectivity of our family histories.
