1915 Thorntown Glee Club

In Tuesday's post on Edna Florence Jones, I included a photo of the 1915 Thorntown High School Girls Glee Club, along with the text from the yearbook recapping the year for both the girls and boys groups. The yearbook also had a photo of the Boys Glee Club. My great-grandfather Edgar Lawrence Jones appears in the photo fourth from the left, above the "T" in Thorntown.

It is nice to see the athletic talent pared with the musical talent from this side of the family. Again this is a wonderful heritage to share with the kids.

There are a few more finds from the Thorntown yearbooks to share, and with the next post I'll turn to my great-grandmother Alma Oyler, who was in the girls glee club in 1915.
