Local history & Genealogy Abstracts from Fairmount News Volume 1, 1888 - 1900

I know you have these records on line but Kirkpatrick's book adds some genealogy.

This is just my way of saying thanks to you and the other fine people who share so willing of their time and resources to help other genealogists.

Included are lots of pictures, and bios (of teachers). Interestingly, included is a section on alumni, complete with pictures of each discussed and a description of what they are now doing.

An example:
1883 - Mrs. Adaline ESHELMAN-RIGDON acted as assistant kindergarten teacher and as a teacher in private schools until her marriage. Since then she has taught a kindergarten of her own, having two sons.
1883 - Luella B. THOMAS pursued her education no farther than through high school. she was a glove-fitter for some time and is now employed at Hartsook's Studio.

What I think is particularly nice about this book is that it has over a hundred pictures of people from Marion at the turn of the century.
