The Cline farm was located in the NW corner of Belvidere Township; remained in the possession of the family for over 110 years. There were no schools at the time, and so all the neighbors organized one. Marcia Louisa (age 16 years) taught in this first school that met in her father's new cow barn. Her pay was a black silk apron. some of the neighbors paid her father in labor.
