1909 Charleston, Illinois Cagers…..Basketball

This article was in my grandfather’s scrapbook as well.   I thought I would share it with you.

I am not certain, but I do not think any of these are related to my Grandparents.  

I am not certain why my grandfather had this photograph saved other than he liked it or knew the people.  Perhaps there is a relative here.  It is really neat, I think.  I like their uniforms.  Notice that they are wearing belts!  This was probably in the 1953 or 1954 paper as I am sure that Ben F. Anderson was not a judge while he was playing for the Charleston High School.  Haha.

I have heard of a lot of these names,  I wonder if any of you are related to any of these people and have a comment to make below?
