1902 Washington County School Census Report

During my visit to the Washington County Clerk’s office on the 14th, I happened to notice grey boxes of school census reports on one of the top shelves.  Since I had not looked at these before I chose 1902 – hoping to find my grandparents listed.  Amazingly I did!  My paternal grandfather, Jessie Hill, is listed below.  This report is for District 39 – I found all but one grandparent in the other reports.

This is a great source for birthdates – given by the parents – since there are no birth records at this date.  In addition, ages of children are also stated.  Two sets of twins are listed on this page!
