The reverse side of this image reads in one hand (in pencil): "Pictures of Hensley School" and "Photo of Ed's Portrait". In another hand, in ink "Towards Brown County?".

There was a Joseph E. Hensley who was born February 24, 1869 and married a Rhoda J. Jacobs on April 22, 1894. He apparently "...entered the education field, engaging in teaching and farming, and is now the owner of two fine farms..." and was a Monroe County Treasurer beginning in 1912 (Stoll, John B. History of the Indiana Democracy, 1816-1916. 1917). Is this Joseph E. Hensley's School?
