Plain City Clubbers

The caption to this newspaper clipping read as follows: “Favored by Many…Plain City’s hustling ball club has many of the bleacherites at the 1938 Utah farm bureau tournament picking it to walk off with the state title before the joust closes.”  The caption goes on to list the names of the individuals included in the photograph which I reproduced as the caption to the photo above.  I list the names just as they were listed in the caption for the photo.  The title of the article was “Plain City Clubbers Show Ability.”  The clipping is included in Grandpa’s clippings but we do not know exactly when it was published.  The team did end up going to Lagoon and playing Sandy for the state championship, but lost.

This team obviously played and practiced in Plain City, Weber, Utah.  Grandpa has told me numerous times how he used to play baseball.  With Grandpa just past 90, it is a bit hard to imagine him hustling after anything, let alone after a ball.  The other thing that struck me about this team is I expected them to all be much closer in age.

John Reese’s 10th Grade Class

This is the fourth of the class photos.  I believe this is actually the 1936-1937 year (Grandpa says in his writing it his his 10th Grade year).  This class attended Weber High School located in Ogden, Weber, Utah.  These students graduated in 1939.  Nearly all these students came from Warren, Plain City, West Weber, and those parts of the county for school.  Out of the whole picture, only one passed away in World War II (as far as I can tell, ALL the men served).

Since I am on a kick of pictures from my Grandpa’s collection, here is the third of the four.  This is the 9th Grade class my Grandpa was in.  Mr. John Reece would be this class’s teacher the next year too.  I am pretty sure the 9th Grade was at Weber High School, but I have been unable to confirm what year switched between Plain City School and Weber High School in Ogden.  Several of these boys died in World War II. The ones with question marks are likely still alive.

Here is another photo, the second of the four, but from Grandpa’s 8th Grade year.  This was taken outside the old Plain City School in Plain City, Weber, Utah. The question marks probably mean they are still alive.

Sharp Cousins

I received this photo recently and though I would make it available.  It is obviously a copy of a copy.  Hopefully the original will show up at some point so I can make a much better copy of it.

Most of these children are descendants of Milo and Lillie Sharp.  Janelle England and Lucille Maw I believe are other Sharp cousins but not descendants of Milo and Lillie.  This photo was taken in Plain City, Weber, Utah.
