The Woodville Republican: Mississippi's Oldest Existing Newspaper, Volume 5: January 1, 1881 - December 22, 1883 - O'Levia Neil Wilson Wiese. The Woodville Republican was established in 1823 and is still being published, which makes it the oldest existing newspaper in Mississippi and one of the oldest in the country. In this, the fifth volume in her popular series, Ms. Wiese has abstracted vital statistics and historical information for the years 1881-1883. The picture of life in the 19th-century South that can be drawn from the reports of marriages, divorces, deaths, religious and community events, personal estate and tax sales, court proceedings, elections and gossip makes fascinating reading while providing a wealth of genealogical material. The abstracts are arranged chronologically, and an everyname index has been added to assist the researcher.
