School Photos and such!
If you have school photos or records you would like to share, I'm sure everybody would enjoy looking at them. Send them to Karen at email@example.com -- just FYI - (Clifton, Thomas. Past and Present of Fountain & Warren Counties) In 1912 the total # of schools was Cain, 4; Davis 5; Fulton 7; Jackson 6; Logan 4; Millcreek 5; Richland 2; Shawnee 6; Troy 9; Van Buren 4. Teachers were: Cain 12; Davis 4; Fulton 9; Jackson 12; Logan 4; Millcreek 15; Richland 13; Shawnee 8; Troy 8 (which seems pretty strange since there were 9 schools in Troy Township - perhaps 19?); Van Buren 12; Wabash 7; Attica 18; Covington 15; Veedersburg 13. Teachers made $2.92 per day. Oh, my :( Although I had a basic listing, the awesome 2013 History of Fountain County was used to add a few and some info on the ones I already had :) Great book, by the way!
