Ed. note: Most of the notes above are quoted as printed in The White County Democrat, a weekly which was published on Fridays. On rare occasions I make small corrections in the interest of readability. On even rarer occasions, I have been known to make typographical errors, but rest assured, most of the errors appearing in this series are vintage! Notes which appear in brackets have been extracted and summarized in my own words from longer articles and are not direct quotes.
