Article from Rockville Indiana library: Jackson Township #5 School:
“About the year of 1860 a new frame school-house was built north of the site of log school by Thomas Winkler and Sanders Kenyon while G.K. Langford was trustee. This building was about 24x26 feet with six windows in both sides of the building, each containing 24 panes with one door in the south end. The building was heated by a wood stove that stood in the center of the house. The seats were made of poplar lumber and nailed fast to the floor. Some of the seats were large enough for two or more pupils.”
He died in Dallas, Iowa. Buried Elmwood Cemetery Minburn IA.
