Brinson, Superintendent of Schools, was present and delivered a short but interesting address on the subject of education. The children showed by their speaking and acting that the four months spent there had not been in vain. This particular school has made more progress towards beautifying the grounds around the building than any other we know. It is enclosed with a nice wire fence and shrubbery and flowers planted within. Miss Leah Jones will no doubt be gratified to know that her work in behalf of the betterment of schools has not been entirely fruitless in our section." on 13 March 1903 at Zorah, Craven County, North Carolina.2
"Miss Mary Whitford's school of this place [Zorah] will give a basket supper on Saturday night before the fifth Sunday of this month in order to raise funds for a school library.

"Miss Mary Whitford's school stopped last week in order that the house could be painted." on 27 November 1904 at Zorah, Craven County, North Carolina.4
"Miss Mary Whitford's school will close next Saturday. The young people are anticipating a little dance at the school house in the afternoon, everybody come." on 13 March 1906 at Zorah, Craven County, North Carolina.5
"Our schools are progressing nicely under the management of Miss Katie Whitford at Friendship school house, and Miss Mary Whitford at the Caton school house....There will be a Christmas tree at the Caton school house Friday night Dec. 24th. Everybody is invited to come and bring presents for their friends." on 13 December 1909 at Zorah, Craven County, North Carolina.6
She married Joshua Allen Toler, son of James Lawrence Toler and Sinia Anne Dunn, on 15 June 1916 at New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina.
