Vernon, KY, copy provided by Cox; article written by Cox.

Her first teaching assignment was at Cummins, a rural school in Rockcastle County on what is now Highway 461. In 1933 it was a rocky road which was hard for horses to travel. Marie boarded in the district and rode horse back from home to school on Monday morning and back home on Friday evening. She had about forty students and earned $52.70 per month. The term was only six months that year.30Marie Krueger Cox, 1989.

After teaching that one term, Marie returned to Eastern. She continued for two and a half years before becoming an adult education teacher through the W.P.A. Program.31Marie Krueger Cox, 1989. The Works Progress Administration, WPA, was an employment and infrastructure program created by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1935, during the Great Depression. She next worked for the State Department of Education and in the Rockcastle County Superintendent’s office. Her duties included gathering county school statistics and long range planning for the county schools.32Marie Krueger Cox, 1989.

In 1937, Marie was assigned the Durham school in the southeastern part of the county beyond Livingston. She again boarded in the district and walked a mile each way to and from school. In fall 1938, Marie was moved to the school at Wildie. She boarded with Florence Barnes on Brush Creek Road to be closer to school.33Marie Krueger Cox, 1989. This assignment continued until at least 1940.34 1940 U.S. census, Rockcastle Co., KY, population schedule, Mag Dist. 4, enumeration district (ED) 102-12, sheet 2B, household 23, Florence Barnes; digital image, Ancestry (https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/2442 : accessed 6 Jan 2022); from NARA microfilm 627, roll 1353.

After Wildie, Marie taught at the Owen Allen, Long Branch, and Freedom schools, spending two years at Freedom. In the summer of 1944, many regular qulified teachers had taken jobs in city war plants and teach positions were filled by emergency certificates. Marie’s job was to help those teachers get started. She visited teachers with the least training, but also stop by schools that had qualified teachers as she passed them on her rounds.35Marie Krueger Cox, 1989.

Marie graduated from Eastern State Teachers College in 1946. That fall she began teaching first grade at Mt. Vernon, a position she held until she retired in 1977.36Marie Krueger Cox, 1989.

Her teaching career carried over to her churches. She taught Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and youth activities at the Presbyterian Church and later First Christian Church in Mt. Vernon for years.37Marie Krueger Cox, 1989. Uta Faye Hopkins McCauley, daughter of Elmer D. Hopkins and Emma E. Taylor; names of the churches.

Henry was driving north near Calloway in Rockcastle County around 10:30 p.m. when a car driven going south got into the wrong lane. Henry swerved to avoid a head-on collision but could not get out of the way. Marie was knocked unconscious and emergency personnel initially believed her to be dead. An ambulance transported her to Berea College Hospital in Berea, where she was treated for a concussion, shock, and bruises. Henry was shaken up, bruised, and had a broken little finger on his left hand. The other driver was not seriously hurt. Both cars were a complete loss.38“Injured When Two Cars Collide on U.S. 25 near Calloway,” Mt. Vernon (KY) Signal, 14 Jan 1954; microfilm of Mt. Vernon Signal, Rockcastle County Public Library, Mt.
