These handsome fellows are all the males in the first graduating class of Mt. Pulaski High School in 1914. They are Harry Rothwell, Frank Turley, Alfred Litterly and Floyd Downing. There were females in the class but they took a separate picture. I haven’t seen but have talked to people who said they did.
This is a map of Logan County from 1876. It’s from the David Rumsey Collection of historical maps. In addition to being a map of the county the townships and sections are marked and numbered. It can be used to locate land purchases for early settlers from the Government Land Records Office. For whatever reason, a few 1876 land owners are marked on this map.
