List (first names added to the original list as I discover them) and photo courtesy of Marion Wohlhieter who attended Stockton from 1931 to 1938. 

In the 1940 census Jessie B (53), Dora S (46), and Emma (44) McIntyre are shown living together at 142 Prospect St

In the 1940 census, Frances B Jarvis is shown living at 199 North Oraton Parkway with husband William I Jarvis and mother Mary Butler.

Miss Garis is buried with her brothers Philip and William and their wives in Newton Cemetery, Newton, Sussex County, NJ .

*Although Miss Dodd may not be descended from them, there had been Dodds (early documents have "Dod") in the Oranges since the late 17th century (Daniel Dod) and the first Dods had a sawmill and a copper mine and their area eventually became known as Doddtown.  The family property was on the "Second River," as it was called in the late 17th century,  and the land was generally where Soverel Field and the southern end of Watessing Park are now.

**Miss Orr was my 3rd grade teacher in 1955/56, 21 years later 

***Miss Garis is listed as leading the Stockton Audubon Society in a 1915 report. A former student writes that students, who had parental permission, walked to Branch Brook Park with Miss Garis one morning at 5 AM to hear the birds sing at daybreak.

****Mrs. Dutcher was the widow of Principal Edward Dutcher who had died in 1929
