History of Clark County p430; The first school-house erected in Anderson was a small hewed log structure built in 1838, about the center of the township. Sebastian Fox was the first teacher. He was a resident of the township and settled on section twenty-one. a few years later a log school building was erected in the southern part of the township and was known as the Combs school-house.
The first frame school-house was built near the residence of William Craig. the first religious services were conducted by Sebastian Fox. He was a man of good education and served with equal ability in the school room or in the pulpit. He was universally esteemed, was the first justice of the peace and met a cruel death in 1852 by falling from his horse and being dragged by the stirrup until horribly mangled.
