HCGS Programs for 2014


August 25 –School Houses, Teachers and Locations

Steve Morrison will present a program on the school houses, teachers and locations of the rural schools in Henry County, Illinois from 1857 until 1869.
An 1860 Holmes map that seemed to be present in every good school will be used to identify property owners and school house locations. Many of the teachers and students moved on to other interesting careers. A genealogy of some teachers and directors will be given. Much of the information to be presented was found in the reports of the county superintendent who was given the job of visiting these school houses and issuing a written report.


September – Ron Wallace-Early Surveying of Henry County


October –Floyd Ham
