The Woodville Republican: Mississippi's Oldest Existing Newspaper, Volume 7: January 5, 1892 - December 28, 1895 - 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. The picture of life in the nineteenth-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. These abstracts include announcements of Masonic Lodge meetings, legal notices, runaway slaves, marriages and deaths, religious and community events, court proceedings, legal disputes, estate and tax sales, military appointments, elections, epidemics, murders and suicides, and all other data of genealogical interest. Arranged chronologically, the entries provide vital statistics as well as historical information. Family historians will appreciate the full name index.
