Joann Voyce
My Grandfather John.G.Voyce attended this school in 1885, approximately, along with his sisters and step brothers and step sisters My family visited the building 10 years ago. It was, at that time, a Community Hall where we were well received and fed. A couple of original Voyce family school books, from that school, were donated to their library by our family. The original mortgage apparently was held by Hugh Natchbull Thurlow who was a step father to my grandfather and the log cabin where they lived was the Thurlow farm next to the school-Joann Voyce
I believe this house is just behind the school on the left. It was where my Grandfather grew up
