I would have thought that prairie families, and anyone spiritually
descended from the Pilgrim Fathers, would have read the Geneva Bible.
Did loyalty to the English crown and bishops extend as far as the Wild West?

"kids back then"????

Abigail...I grew up in the 60's (that would be the NINETEEN-60's)
attending a church that used the KJB and I attribute my early love of
Shakespeare to that exact point you make for the "kids back then"!

[I didn't think I was so old as to be a "kid back then"]
