Columbia County Schoolhouses

Looking for Class/School lists to add to this page,  as well as,  info on other early Columbia County Schools.   If you have information regarding a Columbia County School and its students and teachers,  please send the info to me to post on these pages. Queries sent through this link WILL be ignored.

If you have information to add to this page, the best way to send it to me is:
    1) to attach it as a plain text file (without tabs) to an email or
    2) if you can do basic html,  send the html file as an attachment to an email and
    3) if you don't use the link on this page, remember to at least list Columbia County as the subject.

Please do not include graphics or music.  If you have a graphic file that you think would be useful to your page,  please contact me.   Do not use tables unless you can do it using basic html.  If the file is large,  please break into smaller and easier to manage files/pages.

Please keep in mind that a file does not have to be large to be useful.   Many of these schools had only a handful of students,  so a lot of information isn't available.   The important thing is that the information puts a person in a certain place at a certain time.
