In Reply to: Mooney school near Kirby? by Daniel Robinson of 1584

I have a history of the Fairall United Methodist Church, which is located in Whiteley Twp., that mentions the Mooney School. It states the following: "For several years, services were held in the combination school house and church known as the Mooney School. Some later years, the people of the congregation began to see the need for a larger house of worship. So a meeting was called and a lot, one and three-fourths acres and twenty perches, was purchased from the Thomas Mooney heirs in October 1862 for the sum of $56.25."

The 1876 Caldwell's Atlas of Greene County shows where the Thomas Mooney property is located at in Whiteley Twp. near the Church. It also shows a school nearby.

I hope this information is helpful.
