American History
Mary Ellen


I grew up in Ponca and I remember twice being given a tour of Chilocco (don't remember the group or purpose of the tour now but presumably the person/teacher in charge thought it would be educational for us.)  In the late 1950's or early 1960's I occasionally drove with my van full of children (you do know we have eight) from Stillwater to visit my mother and step father who lived near Sedan, KS.  Since I liked to get an early start for our one day trip, I would try to time it to go to church in Ponca or Newkirk, but this one time I missed both.  A helpful person in Newkirk said that Chilocco had a Catholic Mass and if I hurried I could make it.

We did, and our family outnumbered the people who were there for the service!  That's about all that I remember.  It just amazes me how much you recall of your early life.  So much has happened to me, travels, business conferences, adult children's activities that I don't recall that much.
