Early settlers of this southeast Carroll County community brought with them a desire to have their children educated. So they built what was known as the Spanish Grove School.
Early settlers of Spanish Grove were Edwards, Thompson, Butler, Jimmy Jones, James & Thomas McAuley and Jusha Butler.
The school was established in 1879. It consisted of a one room log housewith a stick - and-dirt chimney for the large fireplace which provided the heat, one window with wooden shutters and seats made from split logs.
Son of John E. Ashby and wife Mary Robison , grandson of George G. and Elizabeth Glosson, great-grandson of Joshua Ashby and Rachel Patterson Ashby who came from Wilson County, TN to settle in Carroll County before the Civil War.
