They homesteaded in two locations in South Dakota, he worked as a field hand some summers,they moved back to Hymera and had a livery stable for awhile and then he worked at a bakery in Terre Haute in his last job. Grandmother Mc told about the first winter days she was left alone with the children in South Dakota. They used buffalo chips to burn in the heating stove(no trees). It seems the ones she gathered were not dried out but just frozen and when they started to burn.........whewwww.

- Anna Gertrude McAnally Harless-A True Pioneer (33 KB)
Gertrude McAnally was born in 1879 in Hymera, Indiana, and went west to South Dakota to homestead and teach school. Her homestead was in Gregory County near Dixon, but her first school was in Anoka, Nebraska. She came back on weekends to her claim shanty. The next year she taught school near her homestead in a little shack. When her new school house was built, she and the "big boys" of the school loaded the benches, the stove and the books into "Teachers Buggy" and moved into the school house. The books were all different. Each pupil brought what he had. Some of the pupils were of Bohemian background and did not speak English. By the next year, another school opened a few miles away and a young man from West Virginia was the teacher. Loyd Harless had a four mile walk to court Gertrude. By the next year they were married, and they raised a family of eight children.
