In 1888, teacher Charles Holstein was paid $247.50 for teaching for 22 weeks.  The report also indicates he was the only teacher and the school consisted of one room.   He had 23 male students and 14 female students, but the average attendance for the males was only 14 students per day and for the females 13. 

These students lived in  Linn County, very close to the Bourbon County border near the town of Mantey, south of Mound City.   

I would be very pleased if you could add this information to the Kansas One Room School House Project.
 
I do have copies of the lists of students in this school for all years 1882-1891 (except 1893) but have only typed up the ones for 1882 and 1885.  
 
I also have a picture somewhere of a one room school house in this vicinity, but I don't think it is the same school as the school number was different.
