  • Love those old stories from the Daily Republican and Missourian. I've been 'clipping' the odd/funny ones I run across in my ancestry searches. Sometimes it isn't the story, but the wording that makes them so funny by today's journalism style.

  • Here's an equally intriguing story of Sgt. Ginter, a Civil War soldier whose body was buried in Cairo, then moved to the national cemetery in Mound City.

    For awhile, it was thought "he" might have been "Curly Kate," someone who was euphemistically tagged as a "camp follower."
