More treasures from newspapers.
This group of clippings continues the information I’ve learned about my grandmother’s brother, A. E. “Elvie” Hankins. In last week’s post we left off with Elvie’s 1st wife, Ella Edmounds Hankins, leaving Hopkins County, Kentucky to join him in Kansas City in April, 1902.
From the Earlington Bee, Hopkins County, Kentucky:
30 Mar 1905: Mr. Elvie Hankins, who has been employed by the L. & N. R. R. as brakeman for sometime, has resigned and will seek employment elsewhere.
These clips were found using the searchable newspaper collection at Kentuckiana Digital Library. Kentucky papers in this collection are also available through the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America. (Both of these sites are free.)by
