Events

1902

I HAVE CREATED THIS RECORD OF COMMUNITY EVENTS THAT WAS PUBLISHED IN THE OLD SOLIPHONE NEWSPAPER . THESE LITTLE PIECES OF INFORMATION PUBLISHED IN THE PAPER TOLD A LOT OF INFORMATION IN JUST A FEW SENTENCES . SOMETIMES THEY WERE OBITS , OR TELLING OF SOMEONE MOVING , OR PEOPLE VISITING AND THEIR RELATIONS AND WHERE . I HOPE THESE LITTLE PIECES MIGHT HELP IN COMPLETING YOUR PUZZLE IN YOUR RESEARCH.
