ca. July 1956: the Fields School was built
about 1888. The teachers that taught in this school were James
Burton, Hudson Buzbee, Will Aaron, Van Phillips, Stuben Cole,
Jake Phillips and Elbert Phillips. About 1893 it was torn down
and a new framed building built. The teachers were Jake
Phillips, Hudson Buzbee, Ursula Davis and Angelo Sparks. Eleven
years later, c. 1904, another framed building was built and this
is the school where George Powell was listed as one of the
teachers. Other local teachers were S. D. Fields, Grace Mason,
and Hubbard Rush.
