Midway School in about 1911 or 1912

Midway School was a one-room schoolhouse near Newport, Iowa (which is presently located on U.S. Highway 61 between Burlington and Muscatine, Iowa, not far from Wapello or Morning Sun, Iowa). Until the Wapello consolidated school district was formed, the children of Samuel Walker all attended Midway School. He was a school officer of the school in 1920.

According to stories I heard from my mother as a child, the Walker children walked from their farmhouse a long distance to the road to catch a ride or else all the way to this school everyday, which indeed could have been dour in times of deep snow and cold winter weather.

Paul Moyers Walker, who was born in 1904, appears to be about 7 or 8 years old in this photograph, dating it to probably about 1911-1912.

Other family members identified are Maude Mae Walker, her future husband, Geoffrey Paul Umphrey, Zella "Myrtle" Walker, Thomas Clifford "Cliff" Walker, and Lorinda Fern "Loie" Umphrey. The teacher of these children was Myrtle Irwin.
