Glenwood Seminary: Did typhoid end this Bliss institution?

Patricia Bennett writes:
Ed, my mother, Mary Garnett Holladay, always told of those school teachers, or seminary owners. But she also said typhoid cleaned it out in those same waters located on Kenneth Scott, who has served as our Bliss mayor these many years. Mr. Basil Earls, father of the long time winner of the Adair County Ugly Man Contest, both now deceased, drank the water for many years. I wonder if someone might see if what I remember can be corroborated. I think the stone chimney still stands. - Patricia Bennett
