*In the 05 April 1894 issue of the Bellville Independent (Vol. 6, No. 47), there was mention of a Pleasant Hill school in Worthington Twp., where they announced that the teacher for the Spring Term of school that year would be A.R. Pritchard.  I am not certain as to which school they were referring to in Worthington Twp., based on the previously gathered school names.  From other information given in the article, they were not referring to the above mentioned Pleasant Valley / Cave school. -- AEA  4/08/2003
