    Grand Point School

          I am not looking for family at this time but I am looking to find out if anyone knows or
    knows anyone that knows anything about a school that was south west of Irvington
    by the name of Grand Point.
          I went there for five years and after I left it was consolidated but I'm not sure to where.
    It was a one room country school and for the five years I went the most in the eight
    grades was twelve. I was there from 1944 to 1949.
    Any information will be appreciated.
