Photo Corner: Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphanage

Contributed by Nan Grube
This photograph recently came into my possession. It is a picture of the 1898 Graduation Class of the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphanage in Xenia, Ohio. My great-grandfather John Henry Launder is the young man seated second from the right side of the picture in the second row. I know he has at least one more brother (Robert Dawson Launder) possibly in the picture, but I do not know what he looks like. I am pursuing several avenues to try to identify the rest of the young ladies and gentlemen in the photograph.
