Attendance Records

      Pages from an old school attendance book which was kept by John B. Eaton between the years of 1868 and 1872. Name of school is unkown.
      John B. Eaton (1824-1888)
      On the 1870 census, John, 42 years old, is living in the household of his brother, William Eaton, family 140, in Township 5 Range 3. He is listed as a teacher.
      On the 1880 census John is living with his widowed sister, Eliza Eaton Staton, family 492, in Pickneyville district 075 (Township 5 Range 2). He is listed as a school teacher.
      In 1881, John B. Eaton married Elizabeth Catherine (Betsy) Haggard Groves. Betsy was the daughter of John Meadows Haggard, who lived east of Pinkneyville and is buried at the Haggard Pick Cemetery across from the hospital in Pinkneyville.
      Betsy Haggard Groves Eaton had a daughter Vernelia Groves, who married John B. Eaton's nephew, Pleasant Frank Eaton. The attendance book seems to have come into Vernelia's possession in about 1887, just after John B. Eaton died. It was probably passed to my grandmother, Iva L Eaton, who was the daughter of Frank and Vernelia Eaton. From my grandmother, it came into my possession.
Cathey Smith Hargrove; Granddaughter of Dewey Smith and Iva L Eaton
