Lydia Shanck Carroll was the daughter of Peter Shanck and Barabara Keener and the wife of John Carroll. In her letters Lydia showed an active interest in the education of her grandchildren. During a lengthy visit to her daughter Lola in Kansas, she wrote in Jan. 1891, "Lola and I visited the school day before Christmas they had a good many exercises but I thought they were best in Ralph's (grandson Ralph Spitler's) room... I tell you the teacher in number five here, where Olive (Olive Spitler, her granddaughter) goes has lively times with some of the big
boys. When she (the teacher) wants to have them mind her, they fight with her till they get her down on the floor and sit on her. Too bad is it not. I think it is."
