Afro-American Notes, Pittsburgh 1896-1907

Hi Sandra,

I was in Pittsburgh this week. While I was in the Heinz History Center's Archives I was reading the Afro-American Notes in the Pittsburgh Sunday Press from 1896-1907. Here's what I found:

December 27, 1896
Afro-American Notes Pittsburgh Sunday Press

SAMUEL PANGBORN, of Elizabeth, who was stenographer and typewriter under Sheriff James M. Richards, was re-appointed by Sheriff-elect Lowry last Monday.

I'm not sure if this is your Samuel Pangburn, but it may be.

The Afro American notes are great, but only 1896 has been transcribed; the rest are hard to read microfilm printouts. There is so much info there!! Pictures, wedding announcements, obits, party reviews, including what people were wearing. I can't wait to go back,

Take Good Care,
