St. Patrick, Bascom
The photo above shows the altar of the original St. Patrick's Church, several miles outside Bascom. The priest is Fr. T.M. Kolb, who served as pastor from 1894 to 1898. This church stood from 1863 until it was struck by lightning and burned in 1913.
A close-up of Fr. Kolb. Perhaps he is the same Fr. Kolb mentioned by Alex in previous posts about St. Alphonsus in Peru.
This is the stained-glass window of St. Patrick above the entrance doors of the current church.
