To the Editor:
I just wanted to send a letter to say thank you to the Peabody Gazette-Bulletin as well as the Peabody Township Library for making the Gazette-Bulletin available as digital records. I also want to say thank you to the donor or donors who made this project possible.
I am descended from C. O. Stovall, who shows up in the 1880 census in Fairplay Township, and later in Peabody. From him, I my lineage goes through “Greene”, his son Roy, and his son Lester, my grandfather. In my studies of family history, I have learned that I have many cousins in Marion County.
I would like to visit your town and county at some point to see where my ancestors lived and worked. I have been to Marion a few times and even drove through the Prairie Lawn Cemetery.
Again, thank you for your efforts to keep history alive and available for generations to come.
