School Records, Lincoln County 1880-1900

Student names from the early Lincoln County New Mexico newspapers.

Between 1880 and 1900 no census survives. The newspapers sometimes published a run-down of student names and grades. This may be the only written record of the child in Lincoln County, if they moved away before the 1900 census.
