I was looking for a person in Tipton, Indiana and did a Google newspaper search for Tipton, Indiana. I got this newspaper hit.
Lafayette, Nicollet County, Minnesota
Lafayette Ledger – May 11, 1907
The person I was looking for was not on this newspaper but these three other Tipton, Indiana residents were:
- G. Burkhart
- Walter W. Mount
They had signed a letter to the Canadian Government which was now being published in this May 11, 1907 Minnesota newspaper.
I may not have found my person but I might have helped someone find their relative who left Tipton, Indiana for the wild west Canadian wilderness.
The same Canadian letter in this newspaper
Bluffton Chronicle – May 15, 1907
I hope this post has given you some historical information and perhaps solved a mystery of what happened to your Indiana relatives.
