Knox Chapel built in 1896

We used to pass this old relic every day on the school bus. My father told a story that he had heard
from his father; about a woman who lived in the town of Knox which was there in the 1800's. she fell in love with a wrangler passing through on a cattle run . she wanted to marry him but her father , the preacher- wouldn't allow it. So one night she tried to run away with him.The dragging sound of her heavy suitcase  gave her away. She and her lover were  hung not far from the chapel and buried in the cemetery high on the hill overlooking knox.
