Jackson County, Georgia, Newspaper Clippings,
Jackson Herald, 1883-1885
 
In the 1880s, railroads were expanded, and many people were either moving Westwardly, or South to Florida. Abstracts include "letters to home" from those who had moved, or other references to people who left Jackson County. These references can verify relationships to people in Jackson County. The new train routes made it easier for people in NE Georgia to visit other Georgia towns, or to visit their kinfolk who had moved. It was an exciting time of expansion!
This period of time was 18 to 20 years after the end of the Civil War and a noticeable difference was that many "colored" people were mentioned in the newspapers. No Georgia census records are available for 1890, therefore, the births and deaths mentioned in this book supplement known births and deaths for the period between the 1880 and 1900 census records. There were many deaths from consumption, pneumonia, typhoid fever, and particularly from the measles epidemic in 1885, as well as other diseases.
Abstracts include marriages, obits, legal notices, etc. The majority of articles referred to people in the counties of Jackson, Banks, Clarke, Franklin, Gwinnett, Hall, Madison, Oconee, Oglethorpe and Walton . . . but many other counties were mentioned. This is a great book, with much valuable information, for either historians or genealogists!
8 x 11", 354 + x = 364 pages, hardbound, full-name index and subject/place index - $35.00.

Jackson County, Georgia, Newspaper Clippings,
Jackson Herald, 1886-1890

This is the 4th in a series of newspaper clippings books on Jackson County. This volume contains obits, marriages, sheriff's sales, jury lists, a section on legal notices, and also a section on "Photographs of Some Local Residents." Most of the death notices identified the causes of death, and even named the diseases when known. The articles are mostly about people in Jackson and surrounding counties, such as Banks, Franklin, Clarke, Hall, Gwinnett, Madison, Oconee and Walton. They are all interesting and many give clues about our ancestors. 
The 1890 US Census was largely destroyed in a warehouse fire, including the majority of Georgia's census records. These newspaper clippings will help identify if your ancestors were still in Jackson County, or had moved to Texas, Florida, or elsewhere.
Hardbound, 8-1/2" x 11", 453 + xi pages, with a full Personal Name Index and a Subject/Place Index -- $35.00.
