The following Annual Events were transcribed by the volunteers and members of the Tri-County Preservation Society.

They have graciously given permission so we may use these events, and hundreds of other works. They however, retain their rights of ownership.

We thank them for the hundreds of hours they worked and still are working, and for their dedication to

preserve our paper histories 'DIGITALLY', one page at a time.

Contact me for concerns or questions regarding this website, or if you want to contribute material or make suggestions for the website. 

Please remember that I am a volunteer, and I do not have time to deal with individual research questions, unless they relate directly

to the surnames where I have listed myself as an interested person and contact.  I urgently ask for Volunteers for lookups, transcribing,

working with spreadsheets, indexing, and numerous other projects. 

Thank you.

Newspaper articles from the past.

The Gazette, Carrollton, Jan 8, 1876

             The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Evans of Richwoods died during holiday week.

             Mr. Benj. Roodhouse, president of the agricultural board, has been quite ill, but is now rapidly improving.

             The remaining personal property in the Samuel Thomas estate will be sold at the homestead on the 15th inst.

             Various are the stories told of the effects of the unusual weather.  One is that a snake, three feet long, was killed in the road east of Carrollton on the 3d inst.

             Do not let the noise of our machinery deter you from coming in and settling.  We are too busy to call on our customers, and will have to ask them to call on us.

             A Mrs. Tucker, about four miles southeast of Whitehall, was killed last Saturday, by the falling of a tree in the fierce wind.  She was occupying a woodchopper’s tent.

             It is believed that more damage has been sustained by citizens of this county, on account of the high winds of Saturday last, than was ever previously known to occur from the same cause.

             Mr. John Smith, better known as California Smith, died on New Year’s day, at his residence near Hickory Grove.  There will be a sale of his personal effects on the 12th inst.

             A young man named Allen Taylor, living at Sheffield, attempted suicide recently, by taking strychnine, but the doctors saved him.  This is the third attempt he has made on his life.

             A three year old son of Mr. John G. Pronger, who resides on the farm of Mr. David Stith in North Richwoods, chopped off three fingers of his right hand “with his little hatchet,” during Christmas week.

             Many of our friends have called promptly to settle up, and nearly all have spoken words of good cheer.  Our books still show very many small sums due us, which, in the aggregate, foot up in a large amount.

             We have some wise farmers who are on the side of the sheep, and many more who affirm for the dog.  The depredations of the latter continue to be such that it is decidedly unprofitable to raise and protect the former.  There should be a speedy compromise between the two parties.
