From Walter Wyeth's 1898 book "Madame Feller and the Grande Ligne Mission" (Ed Dzalio)  Henriette Feller was born Henriette Odin in Switzerland on April 22, 1800 and came to Canada as a missionary along with a Mr. Roussy in the autumn of 1835.  They settled in or around Montreal for some time, but in September 1836, my g-g-g-g grandfather, Jean-Baptiste Leveque (one of Feller and Roussy's converts) opened up his garret for Madame Feller's school work and living.  (***See the picture of the log cabin on your webpage...it makes reference to that being the beginning of the school in 1836).  Within several years, the school grew and moved into a barn, and then a permanent school building which was opened in 1840.  The original Leveque home/school is now a small museum, as you are probably aware, which I have visited twice, once in 1992 and then again in 1997.  The vacant (or shell of a) building that I saw when I was there was probably the school that you attended, but I do not believe that this was the school built in 1840.
