 Presbyterian Mission School Teachers (con't)

MRS. LILAH D LINDSAY

Photo Lilah Lindsay

       Fortunately for Mrs. Lindsay she is a member of the Creek Tribe of Indians and got her allotment of land.
       Mrs. Lindsay was educated in Ohio. When Miss Stephens resigned in 1886 the Home Mission Board in New York gave Mrs. Lindsay a commission to take her place. Before coming to teach in the Mission school in Tulsa she had taught in the Wealaka Mission school and may have taught in some other Mission schools.
       While Mrs. Lindsay taught in the Mission school in Tulsa she was very much interested in her work. She took her part on the program morning devotional service.; taught in the Sunday school, and took part in all the various social activities of the church. Some of her pupils are living in Tulsa who will always remember her. When Mrs. Stonecipher resigned in the spring of 1887, Mrs. Lindsay, with some help, finished the term.
       At the end of the school term in the summer of 1888, Mrs. Lindsay resigned from her school work. She became one of the leaders in the W.C.T.U. work in the city, county and state, and held important positions in that organization. She was also interested in civic work in our city and late years has been interested in politics.
       Mr. L. W. Lindsay died several years ago. Mrs. Lindsay has her home here in Tulsa and many friends. She has been a member of the First Presbyterian church of Tulsa for many years.
