TITLE: A Brief History of Trimble Township by James G. 30. Daniels Band Church: "This group of faithful worshipers took over the old schoolhouse on the corner of "Hound Dog Hill," which had been built to replace the first little school of 1822, as mentioned elsewhere. A log school 12 X 15 that was taught by NANCY BAGLEY, of McGleish. She had been brought there by her brother to live at the Bagley Mills in McGleish near Hartleyville, a four hour walk morning and night, through the forests, teaching all grades to seven or eight children at less than five dollars per week. She carried her own meals. That was back in 1822 and she is still remembered by the children of the pioneers and her name is found in the back covers of the old Bibles and other records." NOTE: On pg 9 of same: The story differs here: "Miss Bagley was paid the sum of one dollar, thirty-five cents per week and walked form near Hartleyville three miles, each morning and night, and carried her own lunch. She had seven scholars and taught all grades." Walker's History of Athen's Co., Trimble Twp. "In 1822 a school was taught by Nancy Bagley, a native of Vermont, near the forks of the creek. About 1824 a few families established a school of eight or ten scholars, which was taught by John Morrow, in a log school house without any floor. His compensation was one dollar and fifty cents a week. The school house was located on the creek between Solomon Tuttle's and James Dew's"
