Buckhannon Run

Buckhannon Run School, Berlin, Lewis Co., West VirginiaMy grandmother Maude Hersman deGruyter  taught school at Buckhannon Run a hundred years ago, when she was 22.
She had lots of Hersman and Waggoner cousins there.  It is just up the road from Berlin, where her Hersman, Morrison, and Waggoner grandparents grew up, and a few miles from the Stalnakers and McWhorters.  The old school, next to the church, looks like it was maintained until recently.

I have her grade book, for the school year 1908-1909.  Besides class lists and grades, it has some commonplaces and notes from pupils at the end of the year.
