Students at Brick School 1891-

Since the 1890 census was destroyed in a fire, genealogists have turned to other primary sources to determine names and ages of children, as well as when a family may have moved into the area.  The children listed below lived within walking distance of Brick School on Allison Prairie. Some of their parents owned property, others were day laborers and lived on the farms of their employers. This school would have been the end of many of the children's education.
