* From the book "From These Hills" page 99, "In the fall of 1850 the Pontotoc Male Academy was organized by ... A large two-story building was constructed on the present school grounds where the Main Street Elementary School stands today and was operated by John F. Barlow and Philip Roots. Mr. Barlow was a rigid disciplinarian who believe that "to spare the rod was to spoil a child"."
page 100 "Schools began to spring up in many communities, and by 1860 there were more than 90 schools in Pontotoc Co. Wince at the time all Pontotoc, Lee, Union and part of Chickasaw counties, it is very difficult to gleam from the long list available the names of schools and instructors who were at the time in the present county. Since many of the names are unfamiliar we are giving the full list of schools and the teacher shown on the Chancery Clerk's Record Books for the year 1860."
This lists one school as Woodville Academy. The instructor was John H. Barlow.
