Twice Told Tuesday: Lucy Hill Institute Notes

by Tonia Kendrick on March 16, 2010 in And More,Family Stories

Lucy Hill Institute, Murray County GA, Hemphill, GenealogyRev. Simmons of Rome, Ga., visited our school Monday morning and conducted devotional exercises, after which he gave a talk of encouragement.

Jeff Wood entered school Monday, and is boarding at the Shields House.

Blanche and Edna Hemphill are among the new students of this week.

Flora Gordon, Effie Lee Brown, Minnie Barksdale, Stella Leonard and others visited homefolks Saturday and Sunday.

Miss Jennie Terry visited in Dalton Saturday, and homefolks Sunday.

Miss Sadie Walls is in Charge of Miss Terry’s work while she is attending the state fair in Atlanta.

Our school is much better than at the same time last year, and each pupil is doing good work.

A handwritten note on the page this clipping comes from indicates that it may be from 1906.  The name of the newspaper is not on the clipping, but based on that date, it is probably from the Murray News.
