The Baylor County Banner
Birth Announcements from the Scrapbook
* indicates that the entire article is included in the notes below.
These articles were found on the microfilm labeled Seymour, Texas The Baylor County Banner And Misc. Scrapbook 1905 -1929. This microfilm contained only a few issues of the Baylor County Banner; from 1905 to 1917 and the Golden Jubilee Issue, dated September 5, 1929. Also on this film was one issue of the Seymour Cresset, dated March 1, 1888. I will transcribe parts of these issues at a later date. The remainder of the film contains copies of a scrapbook of newspaper clippings from Baylor County and the surrounding counties. I have been told that the original can be found in the library in Seymour. These articles are not dated. They appear to be from the 1930s and 1940s. I have listed them in the order that I read them on the film so that it will be easier for me to locate them if you would like a copy. If the items are long, I will not transcribe them, but will take a picture of them using my digital camera.
