Liberty No. 1 -- PHOTOS


Circa 1899-1900

~Submitted by Bruce Atkinson: "Here are two news articles from the LeMars Daily Sentinel which have Mary Taylor as the teacher of the school in Liberty township. I found Clara Dennler in the 1900 Census with an age of 5 years in Liberty Township which indicates that the photo was taken around 1899/1900. It appears the school is likely Liberty No. 1 from the names of the pupils."

Very likely--Liberty No. 1 school children group, 1921-1922
