The above photograph of the Summer Bible School of the Methodist Protestant Church of Eastport, NY was taken about 1939 - 1941. Several individuals have attempted to identify the 90 people in the picture. If anyone knows additional names or corrections to the following list please e-mail these to me [webmaster@thytestimonies.com].  Spelling corrections would be appreciated.

Those who have helped identify individuals in the picture were Richard V. Brown [RVB] (who shared the photo
with a group of people who attend the Eastport Church), Gary Skarka [GS], and Robert L. Brown [RLB].
Where the reviewers do not agree I have added initials to indicate the "vote" of the identifying person.
