Mary Catherine Link (1850 - 1917)
The lady in the center of this photo is Mary Catherine Link (1850 - 1917), known as Miss Kate to her family, friends and students. She taught school for 40 years, helped raise her brother's children after his wife died and was active in church and community affairs. This is the only photo I have of Miss Kate, but I do have one very special treasure that belonged to her - her autograph book.
