Hello, I just came across a photo which you posted on the Cumberland County historical website, and recognized my great-grandmother! Her name was Grace Jennings and in the photo she is in the first row, the 3rd person from the left. After high school, she married Neil Lacy Colton McArthur and lived on Murray Hill. They had three children (Mary, Elizabeth Murray, and Joseph) and Elizabeth (Betty) is my grandmother.

While I never knew her, I recognized Grace from the many family photos I now have in my home. Thanks so much for sharing this one, it was so neat to see a photo of my great grandmother that I didn't know existed!!

Best, Elizabeth (Murray McArthur!) Anglada     July 10, 2010
