Names of the Scholars of our School
may wish to know the names of those who attend this Institute. So, in rhime I'll
try to tell the same. Though of Poets bright wit I am destitute of Andrews there
is one Ella; Browns six George E., Harriet and Laura, Sarah and John C. with Charles
Albert we think these enough. Though it leaves room for Ancel whose surname is
Clough. Elva Cass, Wyman and Albert. Anna Chapman. A Charles, Claraett, who is
twelve years old they say. And then these are Does, James Amos and Walter, with
Mary Abby Fife, who we think never will falter.
Sarah Dolbeer and Alonso who
we may well call the squire, next Haynes Mary Jane and grave Jeremiah; then Lewis
Healey and Thomas A. Lear with Flora and Nancy who seldom are here, then Calvin;
and Susan A. Straw and James S, next comes the Sanders, Mary Anna the less, next
Woodman John P., and Mary E. Wells, while Philbricks the number to 34 swells.
Clara Etta Chapman, born 1846 is age 12, that would put this school class about
the year 1858. The families are New Rye, so that is most likely the New Rye School
