Also Ralph and Patricia Biddle Ralph Biddle was the seventh child of Jesse and Ethel Biddle. He was born in 1932 in Vernon Township and began his schooling at the Mt. Zion school with Edith Wilcox as his first teacher. The family moved to a farm southwest of Winfield near the Winfield Country Club. The house was wired for electricity and this was a new experience for the whole family. Fairview grade school was only one mile away and was easy to get there. His first school was over one and one-half miles away and was reached by walking through the neighbors fields. After completing the eighth grade he went to Winfield High School where he enrolled in Mr. Ira Plank and John Lowe's vocational agriculture classes. http://skyways.lib.ks.us/genweb/cowley/people/pages/pg126-130.html
