Each of the articles are dated and the name of the newspaper is noted, if known.

Articles designated as “Forney Happenings” are a collection of short articles that are labeled as Forney Notes, Locals, Forney Dots, Social Columns, etc. They can be very helpful, especially as a replacement for the 1890 census, to determine the location of family members.
