Gwin -- Bourbon County

The Kansas Heritage Server would like to thank Darlene (DarleneA@aol.com) for contributing this material.

I have learned that my great great grandfather, James W. Gwin had a schoolhouse named after him in the Godfrey neighborhood of Bourbon Co., near Ft. Scott. I assume it was of the one-room variety but have been unable to get info on it as yet. It was said to be built on the old family homestead in Godfrey. If anyone has any info on this, please submit not only to me, but to Lynn and Rene too. Someone on one of the KS lists suggested I write to the Superintendent of Schools for Bourbon Co. in Ft. Scott but I have yet to do that. It is a possibility though.
