      About 1924, according to lifelong school-man M. Q. Plumblee, these little schools became consolidated and in 1926 came transportation by motor (these figures are approximate, he cautions, as some schools like Poteat's closed earlier and some closed later). The fact is that, surprisingly enough, the children did manage to get a fundamental education and some even managed to like it so much that they went on to higher schools and colleges. Education did take place in spite of frost-bitten fingers and toes, epidemics generated by the dipper-and-pail and, at Poteat's, Allen Slaughter (as we shall see).

      In fact, Holland Phillips who lives over in Burlington never saw him but that he brought it up about how he owed his education to Allen Slaughter. Mr. Louie continued: "He comes up with this straight face and says how the only reason he was able to drag himself out of the bed every morning and walk up to that school in spite of the way he hated it was he just had to be there to see what Allen was going to do that day!"

      Betty Slaughter Hampton wrote: "Daddy [Wilson Allen Slaughter] worked some nights to give Louis [Hodges] a break from the store. Ruby [Neighbors Slaughter] sewed a lot but liked the way mama [Mattie Vivian Smith Slaughter] sewed better so she brought her material down for her to make all her clothes. She had a room in her house full of fabric." Posted 8 December 2013 to the Caswell County Historical Association Facebook Page.

      When I was very young we had a big chicken house and I remember we crated eggs in big flats stacked in crates. Daddy took them to Danville to sell. He said at one time he sold eggs and chickens door to door. I wonder if he was a part of this project. I remember my older brother cleaned the chicken house every week and it took him half a day. I remember going to Danville and buying chicks. We brought them home and we had incubators we kept them until the grew big enough to be put with the mature chickens. Going to get baby chicks was a favorite adventure of mine.
