Clogher school, approx 1892-94

The cute long blonde hair kid in front is my great uncle John George Wiggins (later bald of course)
The two boys behind that are dressed similar are my grandmother other brothers, George Henry and William Henry Wiggins although both died about a year later of typhoid (things we take for granted now)
My grandmother is to the right of them in the third row with the long dark hair and light dress-full face, her name was Annie Margaret Wiggins. She was born 1885.

The Wiggins family seems to originate from Roslea/Clones area in Co. Monaghan but moved around al lot as their father was a coachman. Later lived in Dublin before emigrating to Canada in 1922.
