"Orville E. Huggins, removed in 1847 from Penfield, N.Y., to Illinois, where he united with the Osceola church in 1852, and was soon licensed to preach by the Walnut Creek Q.M.(Quarterly Meeting). He was a young man of much promise, and his death, Sept. 14, 1855, at the age of 23, was much lamented."

The Glendale School, though not known in the beginning by that name, was opened in the fall of 1849 in a little log cabin.

Orville Huggins was the first teacher, and pupils of all ages attended. A huge fireplace that was kept filled with great logs heated the cabin.

On April 3rd, 1850, Enoch Huggins and wife deeded a piece of ground eight rod square in the N. W. corner N.W. Quarter of Section 36, Radnor Township, to School District No. 5. A short time thereafter, a schoolhouse was built which has always been known as Glendale.
