Mt. Gilead District

Data as of 11/10/2014


  • 1924 (July 8):  The School Board authorized the Chairman and Clerk of the Board to renew an outstanding loan for Mt Gilead District.   We don’t know if this benefited  colored schools.  That’s TBD with further research.     For C.I. Thomas – $2,000 for 2 years from August 18, 1924.  For Carrie C. Emerick $2,000 for 2 years from August 3, 1924.  For W.W. Demoryon $2,000 for 6 months from July 1, 1924.  Loans appear to have been with Bank of Brunswick.  Source: Emerick, Ruth. M.
