If anyone is interested
I'm trying to locate a copy of an obituary for my gr gr grandfather, Wilson Buchanan Carter, in hopes of discovering his parents' and/or siblings' names. I'm running out of places to check and hope maybe an obit would help, but I'm not sure what part of Wolfe County he lived in. In 1870 he was in Blackwater Precinct No. 4 and in 1880 he was in District 115, Rt. 1, (but apparently I didn't copy ALL the information since that doesn't sound too specific) according to census records. He lived in Morgan County after that, but is buried in Holderby Cemetery in Wolfe County. I'm not sure what part of the county that's in or what the nearest newspaper would be.
He died in Morgan County on 29 Apr 1907.
Can someone tell me the name of a newspaper that was in operation at the time, or possibly check for his obituary? I'd be extremely greatful.
This was posted on another list..... but applies to everyone doing genealogy.
Just thought I'd share.
The first three digits in a social security number indicate either where
the person applied (if before 1972) or where they resided at the time
(for those after 1972). It does not necessarily indicate where the
person was born.
The middle two digits are a code to identify fraudelent numbers.
The last four were randomly assigned.
035-039 Rhode Island
050-134 New York
135-158 New Jersey

Spencer's Restaurant is the best -- just a stone's throw from
the Shell Mart on KY 15. Is is not elegant, but the food is good.
The Dixie Freeze on Main Street has typical take-out fare,
burgers, pizza and the like. Their pork tenderloin sandwiches
are excellent. And further down Main Street, the Campbell
House restaurant has recently re-opened. It was operated for
many years by Flossie Campbell. I don't know who is running it
now but I hear the food is good.

Actually, it isn't a Shell 'station.' It is a Shell Food Mart
(convenience store) with a built-in food court. They are
everywhere in Kentucky, and I assumed, everywhere else. This
one happens to have a Lee's Famous Recipe and Hot Stuff Pizza
inside. It's very convenient when you're in a hurry!
