Biographical / Historical
An early day school teacher in Tulsa, Lilah Denton Lindsey writes "Memories of Yesterday in my School Life in the Indian Territory Mission Field." Miss Lindsey's mother was a pupil of Rev. R. M. Loughridge at the Creek Mission School at Coweta. Lilah taught under him at the Wealaka Mission School in 1883, and taught day school in Okmulgee, 1884-85.
Employed by the Home Mission Board of the Presbyterian Church, she taught in the Tulsa school under Miss Stonecipher, the principal of this Indian School. It was in 1887 that the first white children were admitted to the school by special permission of the Board and payment of $1.00 per year.
