Ensemble Genealogy: School Children of Huntsville, Arkansas, in 1874

In the previous posting, we had an image of the letter written to ST NICHOLAS in 1874 by Robert Hiram "Robbie" Prather. Here are some links we can follow to learn about him and his family nd friends.

All the people below are associated with the Prather children, and the school they went to. They make an Ensemble, and you can often see common threads among the members of a group like this.

How does this apply to genealogy? If you know specific people have a common association, you may be able to find them associated in other parts of their lives, such as marriages, emigration, church membership -- you know the drill. The ones you can't find anything about: These are the ones for which this batch of data is important.
