In the Deportment Department

A short family history internet search led to this little tidbit about a Cora Finch, who is almost certainly (from the time and place) my great-grandmother:

Winfield Courier (Kansas) November 21, 1878

The following are the names of the scholars in the Second Intermediate Department of the Public Schools in this city who have been perfect, both in their lessons and deportment: Pearl Van Doren, Cora Finch, Ella Trezise, Emma Rodgers, Mary Kingsbury, Noah Davis, George Heisinger, Eddie Kelley, Paris Hittle, Jerome Vandeventer, and Jay Bryan.

EMMA SAINT, Teacher.

Never doubt Miss Saint.
