WAS MASSACRE SITE, AUG. 1862 Algona and Irvington Pioneers Joined To Fight 800 Sioux (Continued from Page 1) post wns named Fort Schuyler, probably after Schuyler Ingham. and the Estherville stockade was called Fort Defiance. Fort Defiance is a familiar name to everyone in northern Iowa, whereas the name of Fort Schuyler is almost never spoken. Food for the soldiers had to be brought 40 miles by team, from Algona. Hay for the horses was cut from the nearby prairies. The men passed the days in drilling, scouting nnd target practice until January, 1863, when the Indian Lrouble having died down, the Fort Dodge men were mustered out and returned home. Their place was taken by a detachment of 20 men rom Co. A. some of whom were Algona men. The remainder of A remained at Estherville. Harvey Ingham visited his father during Company A's occupation at Estherville and though but 5 years old at the time, he stated that he still retains many vivid recollections of the camp site. 16 Months On Duty A slight Indian scare again arose in March, 1863, so the Algona soldiers remained at both forts untl January 1, 1864, having spent 16 months on duty. When the company was mustered out. Quartermaster Lewis H. Smith was ordered Hurt School To Reopen Sept. 13, With New Plant Rebuilding of the feurt school, destroyed by fire last May, is expected to be completed In time for school to open Sept 13, it was announced this week. It Is expected that enough of the building will be completed by that time so that all grades may be taken care of. This year's teaching force will include Superintendent Condit Bowie; Alice Eighme, Shannon City, principal; Erna Baars, Lodi, Wis,; Glenn Anderson, Burt, music and other subjects; Axel Anderson, Dike, coach; Marlon Hoppe, Algona, domestic science; Frances Vaughn. Rolfe, fifth and sixth grades: Lenore Bollie, Madrid .third and fourth grades, and Leona Bahe, Agency, first and second grades. Axel Anderson and the Misses Hoppe, Bollie and Bahe are new this year. to care for all the equipment pending further notice, and the firearms, ammunition, and the quartermaster's records and personal papers were taken to Algona in a democrat wagon driven by Private J. P. Irowley, an uncle of Tom Sherman. Since the close of the frontier days, the sites of all the northern !owa forts except our own have been properly marked by various Tganizations. The site of the Fort Schuyler is on a main-traveled high- vay, not far from the site of Min- esota's Fort Britt, which has been marked with a neat signboard by he roadside. Descendants Still Living The descendants of many mem- ers of the Northern Border Brig- de are still living in Kossuth coun- y, nnd it seems that we should not ig behind neighboring counties in reeling a fitting marker on the site f our pioneer stockade. Such a reject would be a commendable ne for local civic and patriotic org- nizations to undertake. Fort Dodge might also be interested since some of their most prominent pioneers figured in the history of Fort Schuyler.

The case was that of Matt Lamuth versus Emmet Hegarty and Mrs. John Hegarty.
