Richards School picture
Contributed by Randy Black, who says:
My grandfather, Earl Heady, was the teacher. He was born and raised on the Buck Grove Road about 8 miles south of Newton near the school. I don't have the names of the kids in the picture. It would have been about the same time as the picture you already have. I think he only taught one or two years. The blackboard sign in the picture says "Richard School E.E. Heady"
