Hand-written list of living people (as of ~1949) who attended Sulphur Springs School from 1886 to 1915.
According to contributor Janet Vining Mitchell, the list was probably compiled in 1949, maybe for a reunion, by Florence Manning Mitchell,
daughter-in-law of Soledad Canyon homesteaders Thomas F. and Martha Mitchell. Florence's husband,
Frank A. Mitchell, is listed among the living; he died in 1950.
1. Thomas Finley Mitchell (b. Dec. 24, 1827; d. 1907) + Martha Catherine Taylor (Dec. 24, 1847 - Aug. 10, 1905)
2. Frank Ambrose Mitchell (Nov. 14, 1870 - Feb. 13, 1950) + Florence Manning (b. 1887)
3. Richard Francis Mitchell (Sept. 19, 1919 - July 16, 2002) + Betty Mae French (b. July 30, 1922)
4. Richard Francis Mitchell Jr. (b. 1944) + Janet Vining
