                                MUDLICK SCHOOL


Highland Echo I am enclosing material that was found in an old school register, in
the home of my grandfather after his death in 1980. It concerns the Little Mudlick
School that was located in the head of the holler that ran beside his home. It was
up the Elna road approximately one mile and then up a dirt road for about another
mile. I hope this will be of some interest to someone. The old school house is gone
now but many people started their education in this one room school. If you have any
further questions you may contact me at my home. I have retypped the pages, as the
writing is so faded as to make copying difficult. Thanks,

Sharon (Salyer) Cox



(NOTE: these pages appear here as they were published in the 
 Highland Echo VOL-7 NO:27 DEC.1989)
