Ran across this booklet in my father's records. One-room schoolhouse, with grades 0-8. So far just 1920, perhaps other years will be located?

Location: Hastings Township, River Rd. next to Hastings Town Hall. (Barry County, Michigan, History, 1985.)[1]


In 1920, there were 24 students, 1 teacher, and 3 officers.[2] Thought it would be interesting to try locating everyone. (Off to a good start since 4 of them (Prentice) are in my family.)
