      'The first classes for Aberdeen's school children were held in a
      pioneer home. Mary Benn, Samuel's daughter, in 1889 told the Pioneer
      Association of her experiences... "our first school teacher taught at
      the Judson Scammon house. We walked through a trail in the thick
      woods to reach school, and as there were so many wild animals at that
      time, father told us always to keep together so that the cougars or
      other prowling forest dwellers wouldn't harm us. There were not
      enough children in the whole county to pay a teacher for a full term's
      work and father used to make up out of his own pocket the delinquent
      amount." '
      It is likely that Mary moved to Bend earlier than 1935.
