The back of the photo says "Summer
School -Fulton" (for ma). On the matting that was around it someone penciled
in "Mabel" and then there's a symbol pointing her out - she's the first
woman from the left in the top row.
The dress is classic 1890s,
with muttonchop sleeves on the women. The original photo is an albumen
print, mounted on decorative cardstock.

I have been really struggling with
my "Moon family", but I do know most lived in Oswego Co., NY...lots
near Fulton. I've searched the rootsweb/nyowsego site, not seeing
many photos. I guess you could say I'm looking for a needle in a (local)
haystack. I have been posting on these major message boards with many names
for "my Moons" without much response, I thought contributing photos might
trigger something for someone. Let me know if I can start sending some
more....I have lots from an album belonging to my Great-Great grandmother
(letters too). I figure I'll never know, if I don't use the technology
at hand. Please contact me if you recognize anyone.

was obtained from the History of Oswego County, N. Y., 1789 – 1877, published
by Everett ? Ferriss, 1878.
early history of events within the present corporate limits of Fulton has
been given in the preceding excellent history of the town of Volney, written
by F. W. Squires, Esq. The publishers subjoin the following sketch of later
events and institutions in this prosperous village.
Mr. William Schenck, who came
to this village in 1812, states twelve buildings were standing at that
time within the present corporate limits of Fulton exclusive of the Upper
and Lower Landings.
The first building was erected
on Oneida street, and stood near the east end of the present Nelson Mills.
One of the first buildings in the village occupied the site of the present
residence of Oliver French, on First street, and the other buildings were
in that immediate vicinity, but their exact location is not known.
The business of the village
was confined to the Upper and Lower Landings until the year 1825, when
the legislature of the state having appropriated one hundred and sixty
thousand dollars for the purpose of building the Oswego canal, the location
of the present village proper attracted the attention of various business
men, and among them Lewis FALLEY, who became the first merchant, and occupied
a building which stood on the present site of the Nelson coal office. The
next mercantile firm was Cady, Case ? Co., who offered their wares in a
building occupying the present location of Howe’s law-office. Other
early merchants who located during 1825 and 1826 were Leonard, Whitaker,
Douglass ? Comstock, the Tousey Brothers, Oliver Burdick, John J. Wolcott,
Chas. Tucker, and probably a few others whose names are not remembered.
The corner-stone of the first
lock on the Oswego canal was laid in this village, with Masonic ceremonies,
July 4, 1826, in the midst of a large concourse of people, the address
being delivered by Hon. David P. BREWSTER, of Oswego. The Declaration
of Independence was read by Peter SCHENCK, and the chaplain on the occasion
was a Rev. Mr. IRWIN, a Methodist clergyman. Hastings CURTIS officiated
as marshall of the day, and K. E. SANFORD assistant.
The completion of the canal,
in 1828, ushered in an important era in the history of Fulton, and from
that time to the present it has kept abreast with the rapid progress of
the county, and to-day is ranked among the more pleasant and prosperous
villages of which northern New York can so truthfully boast.
The First Charter
In 1835 Fulton had so far increased
in population and importance that it was deemed necessary it should partake
of the privileges and immunities of an incorporated village. Consequently,
on the 29th day of April, 1835, it was chartered and its boundaries designated
as follows: “Beginning at the southwest corner of the State reservation
at Oswego Falls; thence along the south and east sides thereof to State
street; thence along the public highway northeasterly to the four corners
at the eastern boundary of Steen’s location; thence along the line of said
location to the north line thereof; thence west to the center of the Oswego
river; thence along the center of said river to the place of beginning.”
The boundaries have subsequently been enlarged at several different times.
Aaron G. FISH was the first president of the village, and J. H. WOODIN
is the present president.
The following constitute the present
board of trustees:
