1897 Excelsior Band

08 Dec

In the Summer of 1995, I took the school summer break from where I was teaching to work at the weekly newspaper back home in Potter County, the Potter Leader Enterprise. One week when we needed an historical photo for this feature, I grabbed this picture from my grandparents’ wall. Grandma (Ethel Pauline Haynes) Mix’s father, Earl Truman Haynes is the small trumpeter sitting on the left and his older brother, Willis Haynes, is in the middle row, on the left, holding a trombone.
