News From Fredonia

It is a good idea to expand your newspaper research into adjoining counties as neighborhood news sometimes can be found outside the home county. The following items from a Caldwell County, Kentucky neighborhood were found in the Paducah Evening Sun on Monday, 30 August 1926.

An Alice Browning was one of my "lunatics" from Lyon County. There were several entries for her, most recently in the January 8th entry.

I wonder if it was the same lady? It's possible.
