  1. This is great, thanks! Just one correction: the spelling of Louisburg is not Lewisburg (although they did use that spelling, briefly, in the late 1700s). 🙂

    1. Thanks. But this list came from his Fulton site, so I normally don’t fix errors when I post the info. Unfortunately, the Fulton site has quite a few misspellings, etc. If I change them in my list, when I update lists which I do for newspapers every 4 months or so, it screws me up.
      But thanks for pointing out the error.

      1. Sorry, I realized that after I sent it. I was happily browsing one of the newspapers, earlier, and then it started telling me that the site was unknown. Now, it’s saying it’s unsafe. I’m not sure what that’s all about.

  2. I don’t know Renate. No judgement of the site, but it seems to be up and down frequently.

  3. Rahway NJ is just that in NJ not NC.
    And, a great resource as always! I do mention you many of my talks, handouts and articles as relevant!

    1. Thanks for making folks aware. Much appreciated. I’ll check out the NJ reference and fix. I likely copied something that was out of order.
