Eagle Township History from web site:
The first school house in district No. 4 was erected on the northeast
quarter of the southeast quarter of section 6, Eagle Township in 1858.
Francis Gault was the first teacher. The old school house was used
until 1882, when the present house was completed. Katie Dorgan was the
first teacher in this building and Ida Allison is the present teacher.
This is usually called the "Gault district."
Samuel B Gault, an early settler of the town of Eagle, was born in
Lancaster Co., Penn. In his youth he emigrated with his parents to
Ohio, and settled in Butler county, where he was married to Mary B
Wilson, a native of that county. A few years later they removed to
Tippecanoe Co., Ind., and lived until 1855. In that year they came to
Richland county and settled in the town of Eagle. Here Mr. Gault died
in 1870. His widow still lives at the homestead.
Their son Francis was born in Butler Co., Ohio, in 1831. He came to
Richland county with his parents, and worked at carpentering in the summer
seasons and taught school during the winter. He enlisted in 1863 in
the 72d Indiana regiment, and died in the service at Gallatin, Tenn.
Henry Gault was born in Tippecanoe Co., Ind., in 1845, and was ten years
old when his parents settled in the town of Eagle. He enlisted in
November, 1864, in the 37th Wisconsin, company H, and was killed at the
battle of Petersburg, Va. Edward W, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Gault, was
born in Tippecanoe Co., Ind., in 1847, and came to Eagle at the age of
eight years. Here he attended the district school and assisted his
father in clearing a farm. He was married in 1872 to Susie Cook, a native
of Ohio. He now occupies the homestead.
