V is for Visiting


In old newspapers there are many social outings mentioned.  You never know what you might find while reading them.

The Democratic Sentinel was a paper from Bloomsburg(Pennsylvania) and the surrounding area.

While looking for an obituary or even mention of the death of John Henry Welsh I found this :

"Miss Lillian Everett and Mrs Effie Jane Remley, of Watsontown, drove over to Greenwood Thursday to attend the funeral of John Welsh.  From there they came to this town, where they were entertained by relatives until Sunday morning."

From the information above I was able to figure out his burial date.  I have also added two new people to my database, although I do not know who they are.

It is recorded in my database under John Henry Welsh as a newspaper event / fact.


I noticed that I have not shared this event so I will share it with Effie Jane Remley and Lillian Everett.

Look at old newspapers; you never know what clues you may find!

Stay tuned for the letter W.
