Chestnut Grove School Trigg County, Ky

This school was in operation for many years and served many boys and girls. The information in this article was provided by Earle Ford Adams, a former teacher. Some of the other teachers of Chestnut Grove were Beulah Thompkins, Florence Rogers, Etha Ladd, Joe Turner, Irvin Futrell, Lucy Nunn Clark, Laura Wallace, Annie W. Patterson, Lillie Randolph, Ophelia Thomas Ellis, Sarah Henderson, Madeline Lawrence, Georgia Shelton, Mary Lou Thomas, Lucille Larkins, Syd Frith, and Herber Rhye. Mrs. Adams recalls a family that needed their faces washed, so she carried them to the cistern; but they did not know how to wash their faces. She recalls only one trustee: Mr. A.W. Shelton.
