    The enumeration of youth, between four and twenty years of age, in Plain township,
    made between October 1 and October 20, 1842, shows fifty-five males and fifty-one
    females, in Districts Nos. 2, 3 and 5 and joint-District No. 5. The school census was
    taken by Abraham D. Edgerton, township clerk, who reported the following named
    children of school age:
    . . . . .

    District No. 5.-James, John, Ann, Joseph (Jr)., Elizabeth and Almy L. Ralston;
    Sprankle, Louisa, Caroline and Rebecca Snyder (children of Samuel); Samuel,
    Jacob, John, Mary, Betsy, William and P. G. Snyder (children of Daniel), and Catherine
    and Mary J. Woods.

    They formed the school population seven years after the first class was organized in the
    Thurstin cabin, at Bowling Green. Many of the children of 1842 are the men and women
    of Plain and Bowling Green, of 1895, some residing on the spot where they were born,
    others inhabiting the new towns and villages which they aided in establishing. Some are
    in distant California, and others may be found scattered over the States and Territories
    of the Union.
