Treasure Chest Thursday ~ 1900 Reciepts

Here are a couple of more treasures from my special shoe box. The above original receipt dated Feb 15, 1900 was given to my great-grandfather Thomas Joynes Smedley from the Bear Lake County Treasurer's office when he made a payment on "school" land that he bought.

The receipt below is for the same payment, but shows a little more detail.

According to this receipt he purchased school land on the 15th of Feb 1900. I have quite a few of T.J. Smedley's deeds, but unfortunately I don't have one for that date. The school land could be the Fielding Academy, but I don't know for sure.  I am going to have to do some research to figure out for sure what this school land was.
