Wickliffe School, Mayes County, Oklahoma,
est 1907.

This school burned in the 1940s.  Any help in identifying the rest of the people will be greatly appreciated!

CHARLES HENRY THOMAS PARTAIN: 1903-1983, bottom row, 4th from right. (son of William Calvin & Lydia Wickliffe Partain)
WILLIE MITCHELL (twin): 1894-1966, 2nd row, 1st on left.  (son of John R. Mitchell and Tobitha McGuire Mitchell Partain)
WILBURN MITCHELL (twin): 1894-1959 2nd row, 1st on right, next to the teacher. (son of John R. Mitchell and Tobitha McGuire Mitchell Partain)
SAM WICKLIFFE: 1898-1984, 2nd row, 3rd from left(son of Lydia Mistletoe Wickliffe Partain)
MARY PARTAIN (PRICE): b. 1886, back row, 3rd from right (tallest girl, believed to be pregnant at the time).  (dau. of Henry J. & Mary Birdwell Partain, wife of Sam Price)
CORA A. PERKINS (MITCHELL): 1893-1970, back row, 2nd from right. (dau. of Josiah Perkins & Sarah E. McGuire Perkins McKelvey, wife of Normal Edward Mitchell).

I think the boy and girl that are 3rd and 4th from the left on the bottom are twins. 

Further note on Lydia Wickliffe (Sam Wickliffe's mother):  I have heard varying names as her maiden name, but can prove none of them.  Sam's mother and father were George and Lydia Wickliffe (Partain).  Lydia, I know for sure was full-blooded Cherokee, but Sam is listed on the Dawes as full-blooded as well, but I can't seem to find her birth name.
