I was also reading in a history of Webster County, Missouri Book. High Prairie Township is the area where a lot of my dad's family lived when they moved to Webster County. Many of the children in this area went to the Nation School (named Hindoo Nation after Osage Indians....no I didnt understand this and none of the people in my Dads family appear to have any Native American background that I have found yet). Anyhow, the Nation School opened as early as 1840. It is located on the farm that was later known as the John Bagby farm (later still known as the Walker Smith farm). In my family Cantrells, Bagby's, Manors(my grandma cantrell's family), and other family members and friends of the family attended this school. It wasnt so many years back that this school was still open. In fact some of my older first cousins attended this school.
