Although not related to our Casteel line, this newspaper article definitely caught my eye:

The Van Wert Daily Bulletin (Ohio)
6 December 1912

Such a sad story--for the teacher, her family, and her students.

Oh wow, and only 19 years old.

Wow -- I wonder if they ever found out the cause?

I never fail to be shocked by how blunt some of those old newspaper stories could be - it would be funny if it wasn't so sad!

I have to admit I thought it was kind of funny - who'd of thought math would be so dangerous.
