My grampa was born in 1916. He came from a very big family. He had 7 sisters and 9 brothers! He only went to third grade. He had a one room school. There were children of different ages in the same room. He can't remember his teacher but she was very strict. All he had in his classroom were books,desks,and a chalkboard He only went to school 3 or 6 months,but probobly never 9 months like we do. He had to take the summers off to get the crops. He was 16 when he left home.
