I think it is your John Revis who is one of the children next door to the Shipman's. The census listing is as follows:
Household #101 John E. Revis, age 53, Farmer Rebecca Revis, age 43 W.K. Revis, age 21, M, Farmer J.M. Revis, age 18, M, Farmer Silome Revis, age 15, F Daniel Revis, age 13, M Jasper Revis, age 11, M Elen Revis, age 10, F Toliver Revis, age 8, M Rebecca Revis, age 3, F
Then the next household, #102, is Charles Shipman's, where there is included:
James Revis, age 17, M, Laborer
Hadn't heard the school idea before. Possible. I wondered if maybe there was more than farming going on, maybe some sort of manufacturing. Household #99 was a bunch of cabinetmakers, and a cabinetmaker is also living with the Shipmans. Maybe they ran sort of a boarding house.
