EDUCATION
Talks about where the schoolhouse was located and how it was built around 1870, how a relative taught there, and how the Lincoln District became divided. Had a tornado come through Calhoun County on April 19, 1927 that demolished the schoolhouse. Single women were teachers but did have one male teacher. Eileen could see bald eagles from her seat over the fence line. Schoolhouse was warmed by a woodstove/coal stove. Her chore at school was the water bucket.
