District No. 4 Holton Twp. School


(Click on the photo to enlarge it.)


District #4 School is the township of Holton, Marathon Co., WI which is very close to Dorchester.  My grandmother's brother and sister are in the photo -- John Edward "Eddie" Schwermer and Selma "Sally" Schwermer.  (My Grandmother was "Elsie" Schwermer Cowen.)


To date the photo, I can only offer that Eddie was born in 1894.  He is 5th from the left.  I am terrible at guessing ages of children!  Maybe you are better at it...?


I think this school was located in the NE corner of section 8 of "Township 29 North Range 2 East" as shown on Plat maps.
