South Whitley Items (1874)

The Whitley County Commercial ~ February 26, 1874
  • Our roads are fearfully bad at present.
  • South Whitley can boast of as good an orchestra as the country can produce anywhere.
  • J. K. Combs and Co., are having the brick hauled for their new store room.
  • Joe Shannep is in the telegraph office in this place. Joe is bound to be a thunder and lightning man.
  • Myron Cleveland occupies the residence of Mrs. Bitner, and has gone to keeping house and butchering in earnest.
  • The concert which was to be held at Colamer on last Saturday evening has been indefinitely postponed on account of the bad weather.
  • A daughter of Marcus Norris has been quite ill with pleuro pneumonia, but I understand is now convalescent.
  • Dr. Hitchcock preached Mrs. Grafton's funeral, and since writing the notice of her death I learn that she was 27 years of age at the time of her death, and that she was born in England.
