IN THE COUNTY OF WATERLOO 47
CHAPTER III.-THE SCHOOL.
Among the teachers of this school the following are mentioned: Mr. Bossenberger, John Vincentner, Andrew Kipper, Carl Hartleib. John Berberich was in charge when the Separate School was organized in 1847 or 1848. Mr. Rickert followed him, and then Mr. Federspiel, as the last one when the new church was built.
In 1855 a wandering student taught here, who also preached, and is said to have heard confessions. He kept a flock of chickens in the loft of the school to the annoyance of the scholars and the faithful at services. This finally forced him to abscond. Mr. Jos. Dorschel, now in Berlin, helped to build the church, and made the altar, pews, etc. He also gave a good deal of this information.
