Hi,
My grandmother, Amy Swart, taught in the Fulton County Schools from about 1910 to 1920. I know that one of the schools that she taught at was the Whitcomb school. Unfortunately, I do not know the names of either of the schools in the pictures.

Amy was born in Morenci, MI Dec 31, 1889. Her family moved to Fulton County and she graduated from Wauseon High School in 1910. Before she graduated, she received a teaching certificate from the Fulton County Board of School Examiners on June 7, 1908. She taught until 1920.

When Amy was not teaching, she attended summer classes at the State Normal College in Bowling Green (1916, 1917, 1919) and Defiance College (1914 and 1915). In 1919, she was teaching at the Whitcomb School and staying at the home of Melvin (1852-1931) and Catherine (1862-1945) Whitcomb.

When their son Charles Whitcomb returned home from WW I, he and Amy met and fell in love. They were married on Valentines Day 1920. The school board offered her a teaching position for the following year but she declined.
