I am searching for information on education in Cortland County, particularly in the 1850s through the 1870s. Were children schooled at home or were public or parochial schools established by then? My great-grandmother (Julia Ann Kelley Meyers) grew up in Solon, Cortland County, NY and I am looking for information on what kind of early education she might have received. If there are articles or perhaps a county history that are available, or other sources to which some could direct me that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
