Sisters Teachers

Sisters Alice Markham Marshall b. 1891, and Mattie Markham Vaughn b. 1892, taught school in rural Lincoln County, Mississippi. Alice's teaching career ended when she married in her late 30s. She wanted to return but a working wife was not the plans of her husband. Mattie continue to teach until the eight babies started arriving in rapid succession.
