I was viewing the link that shows Wise County Schools and I found on the link to North Of Chico, 1912 (about) Red Bud School Group, the class photo and names. One of the names shown is Minnie Rowden and she is the girl in the fourth row and ninth from the right. Minnie's mother Cordelia Chadwick Rowden is Aunt to my wife's father William J Chadwick. I am attaching a couple of photos of the Rowden Family. One was made about 1901, the year Minnie was born and the other about 1916/17.
