|Grade school souvenir, teacher Mattie Mae Needham pictured.|
In 1904 my grandmother Mattie was an unmarried twenty-year old, teaching my ten-year old grandfather Keith.
She married her first husband in 1906. She got pregnant by my grandfather in 1917, when my grandfather was an adult of twenty-three years. Not when she was his grade school teacher and he was her student.
So yes, a teacher did have an affair with one of her students, got pregnant and married him. But long after he graduated from grade school.
