In my opinion the heart of Mahoning twp was"Robinson's crossing"or "stop
30" this refered to the 3oth stop on the street car line at "Ma Blues" store.Dewberry school was on the road where John Jacobson lived and the building is still standing and used as a residence.The original deed to the school was in the name Robinson,and one of the original teachers was a Robinson and the community was Robinson's crossing.Another teacher was Blake,possibly Amanda.

My Dad, Jerry Chutz, went to Dewberry School. He asked me to see if I could find out what any of his former classmates may be doing. Clifford and Ed Householder are a couple of the names I remember. If they see this comment, please contact me via e-mail [email protected]
