Bertha Patton’s Teachers Journal lists in her handwriting.
Discovered while visiting the one room, wood frame Baker School. Now located across the street from the Grundy County Historical Museum Trenton, Grundy County, Missouri. Copied from Bertha's journal notes. September 2009. Family lore has it that she started teaching school at 15 years old. However I've not been able to verify.
