Newspapers in Towns Where they Never Lived

Always search for people in newspapers where they never lived–especially if you think they had relatives who lived there. References to them visiting may provide significant relationship clues.

Remember that papers in towns where they were visiting may get details incorrect, particularly about the person from out of town. Nancy was actually a Mrs. (widowed to be precise) and technically in 1901 had not moved to the big town of West Point, Illinois, yet and was still living closer to Breckenridge.
