Mill Run, now considered a ghost town,  had a smattering of families until about the 1920s. Brights Chapel and cemetery is just a two-minute drive up the road, and it is likely that many of those buried there attended this school. The Bright and Carr families had a big presence. The first Bright (Thomas) was compelled to come to America after he was released from prison in England in 1772. At that time, having a sentence that required transportation to America was considered a fate worse than death. The Brights settled in Mill Run, however, and raised a large family. Descendants of Thomas Bright, John Add and Mary Ann Teter Bright raised six children who more than likely were some of the students who attended the Mill Run school.
