Township Tuesday – Skinnersville (7 Oct 1898)

Newspapers often reported news by townships, a practice still in use today to reflect the various news of area communities. Township Tuesday posts will share news specific to a township of local relevance. Additionally, a few days later, I will elaborate on specific persons or people mentioned in the Township Tuesday post with some genealogical tidbits.
