for the following recollections about Lincoln School:
"I attended Lincoln 1953-1960 (kindergarten through grade 6), at that time the grades were kindergarten to 6th grade. Some of the teachers I remember are: Mr. Alfieri (sp?) who taught 6th grade, Ms. Markley (who taught second grade) Ms. Haven (who taught 3rd grade), Ms. Dick (who taught second grade), Ms. Jordan (who taught first grade and was the first Black teacher at Lincoln Elementary), Ms. Latch (who lived on Dutton Mill Road and taught 4th grade and later taught at Showalter Junior High), and Mr. Kapochus (sp?) who taught 6th grade and some time later became the principal. There was a terrific male physical education teacher, "Mr S" (I can pronounce his name, but to attempt to spell his name would be disastrous.) Ms. Baker was the music teacher, and Mr. DeMarski was the instrument instructor who led the band that marched up and down 8th Street for the school's Halloween parades.
"On Lincoln Street between 8th and 9th there was a variety store called "Abbotts" that was run by a husband and wife team. The wife's name was "Minnie" who passed away a few years ago. All the kids went there to buy candy and especially the snow cones (with the crushed ice) during the summer."

"My grandmother, Eugenie J. Doyle
(nee Hardouin) taught at Franklin School from 1923 to
1945. Prior to that she taught first grade at the Lincoln School from 1898 to 1903.
(1903 thru 1923 she married and had 6 children, one of which was my father).
