This is such a wonderful story! These books are choke-full of
Corsicana and Navarro County history. In-case you have not heard
about it, this is a little of how it happened.
Cathy Handford was scouting out an antique store when she discovered
three journals sitting on a table. This was not a complete set of
sixteen but it sparked an interest in Cathy and the hunt was on!
These journals belonged to Hettie May Loggins (1882-1960) of
Corsicana, Texas. They cover our history from 1936-1960
Cathy had never been to Corsicana before but after reading some of
the books she got in her car and headed to our little town. Now,
Cathy is well known in the libraries and museums of this community.
Her goal is to print the journals and we canít wait!
She will give us much more of the details when she leaves her
Alabama home for a visit to the Navarro County Genealogical
Societyís September quarterly meeting at 10:00am in the Nancy
Roberts Room at the Corsicana Public Library.
