Note: I will continue with these tomorrow. The locals for January are often quite lengthy, and this issue is no exception. However, I do want to skip ahead to an item related to the one previously underlined. I’m not sure why they were not printed together (they are in different columns), or why more comment was not made about either. I didn’t notice them at the time I copied the locals, so I need to go back to the paper and look to see if there are individual obituaries for the women in the next issue. This must have been a very sad holiday for this family.
