I have in my possession a small newspaper article that mentions the 60th anniversary of my Great Uncle Simeon Smedley's Death. In the article there is mention he was the first Negro born in Chambers County after "freedom." Would anyone have suggestions on how to word a letter to the newspaper that carried the article. What I would like to do is ascertain if there is more information published by the newspaper. It's a small one that covers Randolph, Chambers, Clay and Cleburne Counties in AL. Of course I would like to make contact with other family members, etc., that knew my relatives. I've thought about posting a query in the paper, any thoughts????
