OCONTO COUNTY BIRTHS

The reporting of births was haphazard at best in the early years. Not all issues of past newspapers have been saved to microfilm, however, every effort is being made to research what is available for this collection. Our goal is to help in researching ancestors and add a sense of history. This page is a continuing effort and will be added to, often, as more research is completed.

An 11 pound boy arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Stern a few days ago. The event has caused something of a flurry about the place for a time, but the world is beginning to look natural again to Theodore and his face is now beaming with a voluptuous, winning smile.
