The sheet goes on to show:
  • how many times they were tardy
  • how many times they were dismissed
  • how many days these attended
and, most of all,
  • their average rank in deportment and study

I believe Rose E. Knapp was not a local but was Rose Emma Knapp (1847-1920) from East Livermore, Maine, who, presumably, took a position at Robbinston in 1872. In 1875, this Rose married Nahum Burton Pinkham, an Anson, Maine, native, who became a lawyer in Fargo, North Dakota. They're buried in Riverside Cemetery at Fargo, North Dakota.

Davis C. Diffin (1822-1908), was a native of New Brunswick who moved to Robbinston, Maine. He was the father of at least two of the students in the Summer Term of 1872.
