|Tater Hill School - located north of Potterville. This

She was born in 1878. According to my father, Emmett Manchester (born
1905), the building was torn down by his uncle Edwin Manchester and the
lumber used to build a chicken coop.
A note about the Tater Hill School photo I sent.
Last week while going through some of Grandma's papers, I found the Tater
Hill School on a postcard. She had written on it saying the school
was called the North Woods School but everyone referred to it as Tater
