Grandpa Gage's School Picture

It is hard to believe that Granddad Gage was ever a little boy.  Several years back, I was delighted to find a school picture that had been taken about 1899 probably in Esperance, NY since that is where he is in the 1900 census.  It would have made him about seven years old.  What I really find remarkable about this picture is that all of the names are written on the back.  I don't think I did that well on my school pictures.  I'm sure there are a few cousins among these names but I've never quite pinned them all down.  Granddad Gage is the one on the bottom row on the far right with the arrows pointing at him.  I thought it would be fun to post the oldest school picture that I have!
