Public School, Weleetka, Oklahoma

1910s-1920s from an old postcard.



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?
