Long School Photo ca. 1905, Martinsville, IN

I have a photo of the students of the Long School in Martinsville, IN, taken in 1905, given to me by Alice Burpo Burns of Morgan Co., IN. Alice's family (and her husband's) are closely entwined with the Neal and McKee families of Morgan Co., IN.

Most of the students are related to me in one way or another. The following is a list of those students. I have added comments regarding their relationship to others in the class. This photo was printed in the local newspaper during a reunion of classmates, which was prior to 1970, as my grandfather, Harry Kennedy McKee (1893-1970), attended the reunion. Persons with a (d) by their name were deceased prior to the reunion.

Homer Burpo (Alice’s uncle)
Harry Ratcliff (Hollis’s brother and cousin to Homer Burpo)
Harry Long (d) – has to be related to Bessie and Bertha
Henry Burns (father of Alice’s husband)
Hollis Ratcliff (Harry’s brother and cousin to Homer Burpo)
Bobby Neal (d) (married Bessie Long)
Spencer Hensley
Paul McDaniel
Russell Page (d)
Arthur McKee (d) (brother to Willie and Harry)
Frank Tackett
Willie McKee (d) (brother to Harry and Arthur)
Elsie Dean (Long) Adkins (d)
Hazel Neal Barger – possible her husband is related to Henry Neal’s wife?
Georgia Lloyd (d)
Celia Tackett McQuinn
Bessie Long Neal (d) (married Bobby Neal. She died just before her 20th birthday)
Bertha Long Burns (Mother of Alice’s husband) – raised Bobby & Bessie Long Neal ’s son, Lester Neal
Allie Cook (d)
Zeta Praul Holsapple
Beulah Praul Lingle (d)
Mabel Lloyd (d)
Edna Cook Miller (d)
John Long (d) – has to be related to Bessie and Bertha
Ella Wheatley Praul, teacher (d)
Dick Neal (d) – I don’t know where he fits in, but he has to be related.
Henry Neal (d) – I think this is James Henry Neal (4-28-1893 – 7-14-1926), who married Marjorie Mary Barger
John Tackett
Harry McKee (my grandfather, brother to Willie and Arthur)

*James Henry Neal and Bobby Neal were Harry, Arthur and Willie McKee’s uncles. James Henry and Bobby were the sons of Robert ‘Bobby’ Neal and Mary Ellen ‘Dove’ Scales. Their oldest sister, Martha Elizabeth Neal, married Austin Clark McKee, whose sons were Harry Kennedy, Arthur Leslie (aka Turkey) and William (Willie).
