Home Coming

The following 1906 newspaper article is a gold mine of information for genealogy researchers. There are about 250 names mentioned in the article (too many to add to my Index of Names).  I suspect that some of the names are misspelled, but I used what was in the newspaper article.  Also, the names are not in alphabetical order, but this is the way they were found in the article.

Week for Louisville and Ohio
County - A Great Time

The plans for Home Coming week in Louisville June 13 - 17 are practically complete and any one familiar with them will agree that they point to the largest gathering in the history of the South. The very lowest estimate based upon acceptance cards and letters on file at the headquarters of the Louisville Commercial Club point to an attendance of over 55,000 ex-Kentuckians. Only a small portion of this number indicated on their acceptance card the county of their birth.

Below will be found a partial list of former residents of this county who have accepted the Home Coming invitation. This list by no means represents the full attendance of those who went from this county. Practically everyone accepting the invitation has stated that he or she will be accompanied by from two to five others.

The Home Coming Association at Louisville informs us that Ohio county will, according to its estimate, be represented by 480 former citizens of this county during the big June week event.

As the railroad have made a rate of one fare for the round trip from Louisville to all points in Kentucky, tickets going on sale June 16, it is expected that all former citizens of our county who visit Louisville will come to their old home as soon as they have partaken fully of Louisville’s hospitality.

For the Ohio County Home Coming the Street Fair, June 22 – 23, is aimed to be a special attraction.
