ORANGE COUNTY, INDIANA
SCHOOL ENUMERATION, 1846
Submitted by Linda Lockhart
Transcribed from photocopies of Daniel Dwyer's Notebook in the William Henry Smith Library, Indiana Historical Society. No date is given in the notebook, the date was acertained by checking ages of the children against the 1850 Federal Population Census of Indiana. This was before free public education, consequently the students shown were those that their parents paid to attend school. According to the History of Orange County: "About 1841 a small frame schoolhouse was built near Rock Spring Church. Thomas Furguson taught here in 1842. He was succeeded by Charles Sands in 1843, and he by Daniel Dwyer in 1844".
