Clara would have been born in Milton, Queens, Nova Scotia, Canada and attended the Mt. Hermon school in Massachusetts. Did she stay in America or go back home to N.S.?
Northfield Mount Hermon School was founded by evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody in the later 19th century. It was originally two separate schools, Northfield School for Girl or Seminary for Young Ladies founded in 1879 and Mount Hermon School for Boys in 1881. The schools aimed to educate young people who may have limited access to education and also students from other countries, which was unheard of in private institutions in America at the time. Still in existence today, NMH is non denominational. The school is located on the banks of the Connecticut River in Bernardston, Northfield, and Gill, Franklin County, Massachusetts.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
