Liberty School in Ross Township, Clinton County Indiana at the intersection of CR 550N and CR 500 West (Frankfort, IN 46041) was built with locally made clay bricks in 1899 and served as grades 1-8 until replaced by the 1-12 school in Rossville in 1923. The last class is pictured in the photo on the memorial. The school stood until 2012 when it was severely damaged by a blast of wind in July that year. My father Gilbert Snyder grew up in the large brick house on CR450 W (ESE of school) is in the photo. Nelson Brown father of Alan and Hal Brown is also in the photo and grew up just two houses north of the school. Both Gilbert and Nelson became prominent farmers in the area. Dale Koble became a farmer NE of Rossville. The Pickering boys lived in the woods that is just SE of the school monument site. Glen Emery lived and farmed just east of the school (house no longer there). John Sloan lived SW of the school on 500N and ran a saw mill in the woods there.
