Halloween at Stack Rock School - 1914

When scanning the Stiff-McLane family photographs that are in my great grandparents trunk at the homestead ranch several years ago, I found this one taken at Stack Rock School on October 30, 1914. My grandfather Bert Stiff is on the far left of the photograph. I was surprised to see that they carved pumpkins back when he was a child. This is one of the few photos that we have of him as a child.

This post is a tribute to Grandpa Bert who was born on October 23, 1903 in Kansas City, Missouri.

  1. Hi,Debra:

    I really enjoyed seeing the photo you posted of Stack Rock School. I linked to it in my new blog about my family, who were neighbors of the Ouradas at one time and intermarried. I'd appreciate it if you come see what I wrote and send me any feedback. Also, any thoughts you have on the school photo I shared. I'm not certain where it was located. Why do you think someone wrote on it: "Mrs. Mary Ourada, Mrs. Lizzie Ourada"?
