~NOTES~
by a Cobb-Sasser descendant who
(now a "Professor of Political Science" at Indiana University)
attended Tedders School in the 1950s

GLENN EARL PERRY

son of
Tollie &Pearl(Taylor) Perry
(and who is akin to most all of the above students)

We were so far ahead of the times at that school!
Even to the extent of calling our teachers by their
first names, the way the most avant-garde types
do today! I don't want to brag, but when I
went off to the big city of Barbourville
for high school, at age 12, people kept saying,

"You must have gone to a good grade school."



Taylor School
burned down and was rebuilt in 1937.
When it was re-built, it was then called
Tedders School.


What Became of the Tedders School Building
as per former Tedders School student
Glenn Earl Perry
I am not quite sure when the building finally stopped being used
as a school. It must have been in the late 1950's, though, after
the bridge was built in 1956 over the creek down the road (right
in front of J.B. Cobb's homeplace). My mother's sister Julia and
her husband David Elder of Miami, FL, first bought it from the
county school system in 1960. They had an idea of making it into a
summer cottage but never went through with the plan. They finally
arranged for it to be given to my parents after they (the Elders)
died. Above is a photo of the school house
[photo provided by Mazie(Perry) Sparks]
taken after my parents acquired it. The school lot had been right
in the middle of our farm. The baccer plants are my dad's (or
possibly those of someone who rented the tobacco after my dad
got too old to grow it). Considering the bad condition of the
roof in this photo (which finally fell in and allowed the building
to start crumbling in the late-1990's), and the size of the pine
trees on the hill (which were planted by my dad in the mid-1950's),
the photo was taken in about the late-1970's or 1980's.

"School Days"
Lyrics
School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Reading and writing and 'rithmatic
All to the tune of a hickory stick
You were my queen in Calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate, "I love you Joe."
When we were a couple of kids.
