    Interesting how language has evolved; this would not be said today: ” late a Harrison township teacher”

      Yes, the use of late, meaning former, is not commonly used today. We had a big discussion about this in one of my classes as to the meaning of the word “late” in a legal document. “Late” can also mean deceased.
