Ada Rippey's Schooling

Jean points out Ada Rippey graduated from Geneseo, before moving on to Monmouth.  This link is to the act of the legislature changing the name from the Wadsworth Normal and Training School to Geneseo Normal and Training School in 1871.  William J. Milne was the head of the college during Ada's time, a Presbyterian elder in Geneseo who had a Ph.D by 1874.

Mac's WWI Training Camp

It appears Mac Harshaw had basic training at Camp Sherman,Ohio. That's based on the imprint on a photo of him in uniform, marking the photo as having been taken in Chillicothe, Ohio.
