I am wondering how to find my grandmothers (Margaret Higgins) teachers reports in Brookings County. Per her obituary she taught in rural schools in the community until she was married in Dec 1890. She lived in Parnell township, Brookings County so perhaps she taught in that township or a neighboring one. She would have turned sixteen in May 1887. I know teachers reports are on file at the County Register of Deeds Office but don't know what year they start nor do I know what township to search in.
Thanks for any help.

Thank you so much. I will try writing them. I was at the museum last month with a cousin but was not aware at that time that my grandmother taught in Brookings County until I decided to check her obituary just in case.

I would also contact Barbara Behrend (bbehrend@brookings.net). She works at the library and has looked up many things for me. She found my great grandfather's obituary. She found a photo of another great grandfather who was a state represenative. She is a really dedicated genealogist.
