Early Students
of
Woodson County
Kansas



These are from my private collections handed down to me from my grandmother that taught in a number of Kansas schools. At the end of each school year small school remembrances were handed out to students as tokens of remembering other students, much like todays yearbooks. I do hope that this information is helpful to you, and that you will find a long lost ancestor here.
