My name is Evan Williams. My father, Daniel W. Williams, was the principal of the old Reed School near Belsano and was the school super. In schools from 1923 (time of his death). My mother taught there until her death in 1933. I worked in Heisley mines until 1936.

I lived with the Barden Watson family and worked part time and went to ISTC [Indiana State Teachers College, not Indiana University of Pennsylvania] and graduated there in 1940. Jack Taylor [former solicitor for the Borough of Nanty Glo and Blacklick Township] and I roomed together at Indiana and I later taught in Colver for a short time.
