History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with Biographical Sketches of Many of its Pioneers and Prominent Men Chapter LIII. Eden Township

There are in Eden five sub-school districts, with six schoolhouses, Quarryville having two. The other districts are known as the Penn District, two miles east from Quarryville; Bowery, in the northeastern part of the township; Springville, in the northwestern; and Hawksville, in the western part. All these districts have large and commodious school-houses, those at Hawkesville and Springville of brick, and excellent schools are maintained during six months of each year. The school law was accepted by this township soon after its passage.

From the Delta Herald & Times dated Friday 13 June 1913: "David J. Keener, son of Mr. & Mrs. John Keener, has just completed his course at Millersville. David is one of our good young men & we are glad to announce that he will be principal of Quarryville High School next year."
