    do you have a date on the photo of the midway school? Did your relative teach there at the time of the murder in the 1910s?

      There was no date on the photo. Grandpa told so many tales of the prairie and teaching at the little sod schoolhouses before this school. But, I don’t remember any stories about a murder. Many of his former students sent Christmas cards all through the years until his death. He was such a kind, intelligent and thoughtful man. I know his students must have loved him. His future wife was also a schoolteacher on the prairie.
