I received this information from Larry Roeder who is writing the history of ALL school teachers in Loudoun County, VA who served after the Civil War! He did further research after our conversation earlier today and came up with the information below. Knowing where she was born and her maiden name, hopefully, will be helpful in learning more about her. I could not find any information about 1937 DuBois graduates at the museum. The 1936 Echo was full of information about school organizations and plans, but not about students
OK. Who knows somebody from this time frame? A distant relative?? Let’s just do a lot of talking and we’ll connect. Who went to Storer College in the Harper’s Ferry area? ASK & ASK QUESTIONS….answers are out there. Thanks for being on the journey with us.

Note that this says she was a retire school teacher from Jefferson. Perhaps this is out big lead for career information and a photo?
Yes, I think this is an excellent opportunity for pictures and career information. A picture would probably help here also….
