In Reply to: LIVE OAK GROVE SCHOOL by Pauline of 168


Here are some clues from the book: History and Families of Somervell Co., Texas:

1. pg. 51: Raymond and Lillie (Swaim) Lanham bought the Lanham place from the other heirs in 1938, but sold it to J. L. "Tony" Marshall in 1943...

2. From pg. 50: ...By 4 Dec 1876, a grist and saw mill called William's Mill was established on the banks of Paluxy creek, powered by water from a dam across the creek. By 10 Jul 1877, William Lanham and T. J. Hamick were "doing business under the firm name and style of Lanham and Hamick, the mills machinery... known as the Centre Mill owned and held by us."

3. From pg. 97: Lanham Mill Publich School District No. 19
"The school house was built in 1901 on the small southwest corner of the farm which had been cut off when the road angled across it. Men of the community built the school...

Pauline, if you are a Martin, let me know, as there is more info in the book about this familly as it relates to the Lanham Mill School. (Please reference pg. 97-98 to help me find the information for you later.)

There is no reference in my book to a Live Oak Grove School. However, there is a Lone Oak School, and also a Post Oak School.

Hope this helps!
