News: The Clark
Republican and Press 1-25-1883
Eileen - Thanks again for the pat on the back. As I told you, I love reading these old newspapers. It gives you such a great feel of the style of life in that very tough era. I try to include the general news that shows how the area is growing. For instance, in the 1870's, just having basic shelter and clearing the land was a struggle. Now in the 1880's, their beginning to be concerned with public issues, street lighting and sewers. Also I'm beginning to see farms for sell. Many continue to move to the Datoka territory. Logging is still strong. I'm glad your Eastman's are listed. I find it interesting that the newspaper focuses on the Yankees of the area - many, many from the New York area. Very seldom do you find an ethic name. And I know that many Sweds, Norwegians and Germans settled the area. But Janet has told me that there was a German newspaper in the area. I wish I knew German to translate that - I would love that. Thanks again, Eileen.
