Volume 1, Number 1 Fall1961
for future issues of this quarterly
Family information: Future issues will carry articles concerning families whose
names have figured prominently in the history of the upper White River Valley.
We wish to build up our files in order to compile such articles. Reminiscences
of days gone by, a record of customs, superstitions, household management methods
and devices of former days, copies of old letters of interest, ancedotes, -anything
you believe may be of interest to other members of the Society. We may not use
it immediately, but it will be put on file to be used whenever
it fits into the needs
of an issue.
Please address contributions (sorry, we cannot pay except in appreciation) to
Edith McCall, Secretary, White River Valley Historical Society, Hollister, Mo., or put in the hands of any officer or board member, as listed inside the front cover.
The second edition of this publication will contain the complete U. S. Census
for Taney County, Missouri for 1840. It will list about six hundred names of heads
of families and state the number in each family. Taney County at that time included
all of present day Stone County, much of Christian and some of Douglas County.
