My dad was raised in Weleetka, Orlan Dewey Boydston. His dad John Walter accidently shot himself and died about 1925 when dad was 10. His mother then married Cordy Purdy and moved to Tulsa. Her husband and infant children are buried at Weleetka.
Would Orlan, my dad, have gone to school in the school pictured? Does anyone remember anything about my family?

My grandmother Erma Elizabeth Solomon was a school teacher in Weleetka, OK in the early 1920's, she lived in Weleetka with her grandmother Mary E. Lyon. Would anyone have any information or school pictures?

My grandmother, Ethel Laura McCallie, graduated from Weleetka highschool in 1925, I believe she knew a guy by the name Of Gully, or maybe Sully Chapman, whom I believe worked for the osage oil company. Does anyone have any idea about who this person is? Any help would be GREAT! Thank you so much!

Weleetka School

this school burned in the early 1940's. Weleetka High School was also known as "Austin School, District 31". William Austin donated the land to build the school.
