>From the June 18th issue of Dick Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter
- 20,000 Community Newspapers To Become Available Online
The following is an excerpt from a press release by the National
More than 20,000 community newspapers, some long out of print,
have recorded American life since the 17th century, and two
unique organizations have set the common goal of providing
Internet access to this documentation of American heritage.
The National Newspaper Association (NNA) and Cold North Wind
Corporation signed a letter of intent today to create
America's Chronicles(SM), an online search engine that
accesses the digital archives of America's community
newspapers, beginning with the archives of the 3600 NNA member
The project could eventually result in 500,000,000 pages of
original, historical content dating back to the 1600s and will
be available online at http://www.americaschronicles.com. The
site will be launched at the NNA's 116th Annual Convention and
Trade Show in Milwaukee, September 12-15, with access to the
first of many digital archives.
By working with community papers and the NNA, a not-for-profit
trade association representing the grassroots of America's
newspaper owners, publishers and editors, Cold North Wind will
make digital access to this rich source of historical and
genealogical content available for the first time.
EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage, will
provide data storage for the exceptionally large database
required to create this digital archive. Cold North Wind
partner microCreditCard, the Internet's leading credit card-
based micro-payment facilitator and alternative billing
provider, was chosen as the exclusive online payment service
for its convenient digital content payment solutions.
Although the terms of the agreement were not fully disclosed,
the subscription revenue from the project will go to the NNA
and participating newspapers. NNA and Cold North Wind are also
exploring ways to make the service available as a resource at
public institutions. The two groups are calling on
corporations across the country to get involved in this
"We are excited to breath life into hundreds of years of
history that are currently buried in the archives of America's
newspapers and libraries," said Diane Everson, publisher of
The Edgerton Wisconsin Reporter, and president of NNA. "Our
agreement with Cold North Wind will give readers everywhere
access to historical events from the perspective of America's
hometown newspapers. America's Chronicles(SM) will allow us to
see how community, national, and international events changed
the fabric of our ancestors' daily lives. Newspapers are truly
the first draft of history."
The full press release is available at:
I am so impressed with Wyoming County. My sincere thanks to all who replied. I am amazed at how quickly and how many people read my message and sent information. Anita Hayes actually sent me an obit for Myron Wilcox - alas, they had no surviving children, but I will further research in Wyoming County.
Thanks to Rootsweb and Wyoming County for making all searches possible on line - and for the people of Wyoming County.

>Tuesday: I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door.

Any information would be appreciated on the Sprout family. sswheeler(a)qwest.net
Taken from The Heritage of Faribault County, page 301:
John H. Sprout - F380
John H. Sprout was a native of Attica, Wyoming County, New York where he was born December 1836. His father Col. Hosea B. Sprout, a farmer, was a resident of Attica for fifty years. John got his education at common schools in the district, at Warsaw Academy and Genesee Wyoming Seminary. He then engaged in teaching school in this native county.
In 1857 he emigrated to Dodge County, Minnesota and worked at farming there for awhile. In the fall of 1857 he went to Columbia County, Wisconsin, where he read law with Honorable O. C. Howe, until the next spring, when he returned to Wisconsin and taught school for three years after which he came back to Minnesota and farmed for a year and a half. He then went to Juneau, Wisconsin where he resumed the study of law and later attended for some time, the Michigan University law school.
He was married in 1861 to Miss Caliste L. Nichols of Dodge County, Wisconsin.
He was admitted to the bar in Dodge County and began to practice law. He later came to this county, locating in Blue Earth City and practiced full time. He became the county attorney, justice of peace for some time, twice president of the council of Blue Earth City, and president and member of the board of education there for a number of years. For several years he was postmaster at Blue Earth City. He was a member of Methodist Episcopal Church.
Written by J. A. Kiester
Taken from the Blue Earth Post, December 19, 1911:
Judge J. H. Sprout had a pleasant reminder of his seventy-fifth birthday last Saturday evening. He always attends every meeting of the Masonic brethren unless sickness or business affairs prevent, and while at lodge last Saturday evening he received an urgent phone call from Mrs. Sprout to come home. Shortly after his departure the lodge was informed that the date was Mr. Sprout's birthday and that the members present were invited forthwith to the home to assist in the happy occasion. The membership present were not entirely destitute of funds and $12.00 was raised, a gold headed cain (cane) purchased and the journey from labor to refreshment commenced.
Mrs. Sprout had provided a bountiful repast which all enjoyed, as well as the good talk by Mr. Sprout in thanking the brethren for the momento of the pleasant occasion. Mr. Sprout has been a member of the home lodge for more than forty years, has held every important office therein, and there is not a stain upon his garments.
Obituary from the Blue Earth Post, November 18, 1913:
John Henry Sprout Dead
The several weeks' illness of J. H. Sprout terminated in his death at the family home in this city Monday evening, November 17th, at about ten o'clock. He had been in the best of health for one of his age up to about two months ago when stomach trouble began to annoy him and later a well-defined case of cancer of the stomach manifested itself.
No man can do the memory of John Henry Sprout justice in an obituary prepared in a few moments. His long residence in the county, his early activities in the politics of county, district and state, are matters worthy of more consideration than can be allotted to them this morning. In politics he was a republican, though in the '70ties he followed General Ben Butler and Weaver into the Greenback field, but for many years had identified himself with the republican party and gave it hearty and loyal support. He held the position of county attorney, and during the lively political bouts of early days came within a few votes of winning the judicial nomination over Judge Dickinson. He was honored with the postmastership under the Garfield administration. He was likewise prominent in Masonic circles both in the county and State, and we doubt if he missed a Grand Lodge session in a quarter of a century. He had assisted in the formation of lodges at Elmore and Bricelyn and was !
ever ready to give them good and wholesome instruction.
J. H. Sprout was a native of New York, born at Attica, December 16, 1836. He was a student at Genesee Seminary for a time and then engaged in school teaching for a few years. He came to Minnesota in 1857, but returned to Columbia County, Wis., in the fall of that year and commenced reading law. He was married to Caliste L. Nichols in 1861, and came to this county where he was admitted to the bar and engaged in practice for many years.
In his religious affiliations the deceased early in life identified himself with the great Methodist body. Funeral services will be conducted from the church Thursday afternoon by the pastor, Rev. O. V. Siniff, assisted by Rev. Wm. Jennings of the Presbyterian church. It is thought a number of the Masonic Grand Lodge body will be present at the services.
I found a book in the Blue Earth Library, A History of the First United Methodist Church, 977.622 History, which states John was a trustee in this church. This is not the Salem Methodist Church, where many other relatives attended, but the First United Methodist Church.
