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.



Mr. and Mrs. Elzie Holman have been entertaining a fine boy at their home since May 1.  He tipped the scales at seven pounds.  His first name will be Elzie, but the parents have not decided on the other name. Mr. Holman is with the Plunkett Motor Freight Line.

The O. F. Harvey family is all pepped up over the arrival of a young son in their home.  He put on his appearance Monday, weighing 8 1-2 pounds and his name is Fred Temple. Mother and son are doing fine.

A new boy arrived Friday at the N. P. Mitchell home which makes two sons for Mr. and Mrs. N. P. Mitchell Jr.  The father has been occupied with his duties as faculty member at Duke University, Durham, NC and he had gone to Washington on some research work and to attend the inauguration when the wire was sent advising him of his new heir. The young man weighted 8 pounds, but he has to wait a few days for a name pending consultation with his dad. 

Wand Janelle Lee is the name of a fine seven and three quarter pound girl who arrived Tuesday to make her home with Mr. and Mrs. Bill Lee.  Everyone concerned is doing fine and they think they have one of the finest youngsters in the world.  Mrs. R.
