Why Publish Bonnie's Clippings? Genealogy!

In June 2004, I acquired an album of newspaper clippings that had been stored for nearly 20 years. They had been compiled by Bonnarea "Bonnie" Janell FUQUA Phillips. The oldest one (so far) is from Feb 1959 and the most current one is from 1985, the year Bonnie died. The reason why Bonnie saved these particular newspaper clippings is unknown. We do know that at various times she subscribed to The Floyd County Hesperian-Beacon (Floydada, Floyd County, Texas, USA,) Jack County News (Jacksboro, Jack County, Texas, USA,) and Times Record News (Wichita Falls, Wichita County, Texas, USA.) Bonnie had friends and family in all three of these West Texas towns.

These newspaper clippings contain photos, anniversaries, birthdays, rewards, recognitions, and human interest stories. As such, these are sources of history and genealogy. I plan on estimating dates and places, then transcribing the text and publishing them on-line as time allows. To request an image of a clipping, email me and I will scan the clipping and publish it. To do that, I will need the Web address (http://freepages...) or title of the Web page.

I was going to index all the names, but I was quickly overwhelmed. Here is a partial listing.
