         Mabel and sister, Fay, went to school at the William or West PrairieSchool where all of her father's (Harrys') family had gone. Her folkslived here three years then moved to a farm between Breckenridge andMoorsville on farm rented, belonged to "Uncle" Jimmy Mann. Mabel and Fayattended the Hudgins School, a country school. Harold missed a lot ofschool. He had Malaria several times each year, was often sick. Theylived here two years the 1st year was pretty good but second so dry didnot raise feed for the stock, that was 1901. Harry made a trip back homeand bought a farm just west of his folks farm. Then Mabel and all theHarry Fort children attended the Dillon School a mile and a quarter allon mud roads. This was the last move Alice and Harry moved.

They lived with his parents, who later moved to Texas to afarm they owned, leaving George to manage the home place.
