White Schoolhouse which was some place in the vicinity of the Pleasant 

View Church, out Princeton Road.

Names are listed in the order as shown on the record, there seems to be 

no particular reason.

* A relative who knew her says Charlie Collins was a girl.

This is from the attendance record and Kate Sisk, Hattie Parker, Mattie 

Parker, Charlie Collins and Royal Utley are listed as tardy on two 

occasions.  From this distance, considering the weather, distance 

they had to walk, chores to be done, this seems like a remarkable record 

for the school.
