GENEALOGICAL & HISTORICAL EXTRACTIONS FROM THE Valley Times, KITTANNING, PA, 1876-1878. 2004 compiled by M. Annie Monrad. Newspaper articles of this time were written with every detail and flamboyancy. The reader learns much more about the subjects and events than the condensed news writings of today. Ms. Monrad compiled obituaries as well as any news events that involved names of the day from throughout Kittanning and surrounding Armstrong County. Loads of interesting tidbits. Examples: "Mr. Ed P. Patterson and Miss Kate Reynolds were dumped over the bank, east of the Power house last Sunday, out of a buggy and slightly injured. The horse became frightened of some pigs which caused the trouble." "Harry Smith has started a Hennery on his father's farm in Valley township, about one mile from town, and has already obtained about two hundred fowls, of the choicest breeds in the county." "We are sorry the baseball epidemic has returned but we suppose there is no help for it. It has come to be as natural as measles in children or the ten commandments in Sunday Schools, both of which we regard as essential part of life." Surname indexed.
