Thirteen male Osage students [version 1], 1891

Studio photo of thirteen male students. They are identified in the caption of the Cumberland County Historical Society copy of this image as being "Osage group, 1891."

A researcher at the Cumberland County Historical Society identified the students in their copy of this image as, top row, left to right: Claude Smith, Frank Penn, Amos Osage, Daniel McDougan; middle row, left to right: Elias Stanton, Harry Kophay, Richard Rusk, Ben Harrison, Fred Penn; bottom row, left to right: David Copperfield, George Connor, Amos Hamilton, Edgar McCarthy.

There is no Claude Smith in the school records from the Osage nation. Either this is Sioux student Claude Smith or is it Osage student Chester Smith.
