Forgotten Letts School Photo

I was so excited to discover this photo on a recent visit to the Exit 76 Antique Mall in Edinburgh, Indiana. The photo is of grades 1 and 2 at Letts School in Jackson Township. "Ruby M. Thurston" is written on the back. Luckily, I was able to find Ruby very easily in the census.

Ruby was born in 1898, the daughter of Jacob and Mabel Thurston, and she had two brothers, Marion Earl and Carl. She was a school teacher in Jackson Township from at least 1920-1930.
