Re: A Higher Purpose For Newspaper Articles

Thanks so much Art for your thoughts and I am grateful to learn of your family's connection to the Indianapolis Recorder. I am very impressed with your 1843 ancestral connection to a newspaper. My earliest ancestral connection to a newspaper was finding the letter of my great great grandfather, Thomas Cole of Princeton, Indiana, to the editor of the Provincial Freeman, a Canadian abolitionist newspaper. The letter was dated February 2, 1857, and appeared in the March 7, 1857 issue of the newspaper. The editor of the paper was an African American.
