MR. C. SMITH BADLY HURT
On Friday of last week, while Mr. C. Smith of Smithsonia was riding out on his place, he met with a serious accident, which came near costing him his life. His horse backed himself over a precipice, and in his effort to recover the girth broke, throwing him off and down a perpendicular bank of six or seven feet. Mr. Smith still holding the bridel drew the horse back on him. Drs. Arnold and Sugg were called in to tender the necessary medical attention.
INCENDIARIES IN LAWRENCE
Last Friday night at Mt. Hope incendiaries applied the torch to Mr. A. H. Blackwell’s steam gin, grist mill and wool cards and in a short time the entire structure was in ashes. The loss is $1200, with no insurance. All the machinery was comparatively new and was one of the best mills in Lawrence county. Dilligent efforts should be made to bring the guilty parties to justice, from Russelville Idea
“This book was very informative and at a very modest price. One web site I may have missed in your book that has been very helpful to me is genealogybank.com. I found articles about several of my ancestors in their newspaper archives. Thank you for your great newsletter and this book.”
“The book was clear & concise, with excellent information for beginners. As an experienced genealogist, I enjoyed the chapter with lists of interview questions. I’d recommend this book to those who are just beginning to work on their genealogies. For more experienced genealogists, it provides a nice refresher.”
