Texas wedding records
How would you find someone in Northeastern Iowa to take on research project as a learning experience?

My great aunt worked as a teacher in the Waukon schools in then period 1895-1899 for two years. I don’t know exactly which two years as she graduated from high school in 1895 and was teaching in another city by 1899. Her two years were mentioned in her obituary and her wedding announcement. Right after high school, she probably attended a short Normal School to learn teaching as it was done then.
The school district of Waukon has told me they have employment records from back then, but can spare no one to look through them. I learned of them right after passing through the town on a trip a couple of summers ago. I live in Texas.
Obviously, anyone willing to wade through the records could do a service for geneology by listing all the teachers and superintendents each year.
This seems a useful project for a beginner who wants to do real research, but where do I find one? Here?

It appears that the Allamakee County Historical Society has already preserved several similar records. You might find a good set of kindred spirits there, especially since they have the facilities to house these records and the volunteers to archive them properly.

Legal (?) Definition of a fence in Texas?

I am in a dilemma. I asked (sued. ..) to a fence. Understand that life in the country (several hectares in each plot), no one knows and have opinions, too, what is the definition of a fence. I'm looking for "Miniamal required" … .. in other words a single thread? Mutliple discussions? Heighth? Any word wisdon be seen … I searched high and low. My assumption, or belief is a unique string to 20 feet intervals suffice. I googled this to death and can not find the answer you need help / appreciated! Sorry for the spelling .. I can not go in and change up: (

Read the trial, the document entitled "Complaint". That tells you what the plaintiff wants the fence to do. He may complain that you and your wife are very ugly and do not want you to watch or be embarrassed by their cows wandering in his cornfield. The presumption is that if winning The trial will build a wall that will solve the problem. This can be a single strand of wire, or three chapters, or ten foot fence for privacy, cloth or metal. Read the trial, should tell you what you ask.
