1867 School Register for Taycheedah

Now that the summer  season has come to a close, I am back digging through the many records found in the library of the historical society.  Right now I am looking through the school books, and the school registers.

Yesterday I found the Teacher's Daily Register for 1867 for Taycheedah School, and this is the earliest book ever found for any Fond du Lac school so far.  Of course, give me a little time.  I might find more!!!


You might not be able to read the full list pictured above, but a very familiar name in Fond du Lac history pops up from the middle of this page......9 year old Peter Mengel!  WOW!

What is interesting, in reading this first book, is the fact that all of the boys are listed on one page, and all of the girls are listed on the second page......then, each student is given a number.....the boys get the odd numbers of 1,3,5,7,9    and the girls get even numbers  2,4,6,8
There are a total of 58 students in the list.
The school register starts with the date of November 11, 1867, and marks each student's attendance.  Five of the boys did not start attending until Nov. 18th.

Here is a full list of surnames found in this register:
