Diane Wright added this:
     My grandfather, Lynn Dale Morgan was born in Ireton in 1896, and lived in Hawarden until the late 1920s. He was a very large man, and was known as "Big" Morgan. He and Hope Emerson "courted" in high school--he always said (I am told) that the only reason she dated him was because he was the only man in town taller than she was!
     Lynn and my grandmother, Gussie Caperton Morgan, from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, met in South Dakota, when they were both acting in a local theater production of a play called "Whose Little Bride Are You?" Because of this amateur acting bent that he must have had, I have no doubt that he is in the photo of the cast on the stage. I cannot make out enough detail to tell precisely.
