    1. Wow! Where she was buried is not far from me. Interestingly, it is not far from the city of Galt, either. Made me wonder whether this was a family with longstanding roots in the area...but it turns out the city of Galt was named for another city, not a person. Oh, well...it was a thought.

      Perhaps her high school yearbook will turn up in one of those online collections and it can tell us what subject she taught.

      She didn't live long, either. From online records, looks like she had a brain tumor and meningitis. So sad.

      Records show her parents' names were Byron Jenkins and Mary Parkyn, both of New York State, if that is of any help.

    1. Interesting...so this was a pioneer family in the region. Thanks for finding that, Iggy!
