Early School House

As a young girl, Lueannie Boyett Calhoun, daughter of John Boyette (1865-1938) and Mary Jane Sirmans Boyett (1867-1946),  attended the common schools of the area.

She probably attended the Grand Bay School, about which Nell Patten Roquemore wrote:

Grand Bay School was in the Crum-Boyett-Giddens-Baskin community, west of Milltown. (The building is still in use as a pack house on the W.B. Boyett farm.) Bob Patten had taught there before the turn of the century. Among the pupils there were Mary Crum and Larue Giddens.
