Celinda Metoxen Student File

Student file of Celinda Metoxen, a member of the Oneida Nation, who entered the school on July 8, 1891 and departed on July 5, 1898. The file contains a student information card, a returned student survey in which she writes about her husband and three children, a news clipping, and a report after leaving indicating that Metoxen was a farmer in West De Pere, Wisconsin in 1910.

In school documentation Celinda Metoxen's married name is Celinda Cornelius (Mrs. Isaac W. Cornelius).

Note: Two people named Celinda Metoxen attended the school (both were Oneida, the other student entered in 1888) and while this file says Celinda Metoxen married Isaac W. Cornelius, other documentation indicates she married Foster House. Based on the information available we do not know which is correct.
