Every Wednesday, The Breckenridge News, and it's eight seven-column pages would provide a mix of local community and political news, a sampling of broad general interest stories, and opinion pieces by local columnists.   John D. Babbage, the owner, started The Breckenridge News on July 22, 1876 and continued publication until his death in 1934. His daughter, Mildred Babbage, took over the paper as editor until her death in 1949. The paper was then taken over by W.G. Polk, the grandson of John D. Babbage, ending one year later. You can read the full history of The Breckenridge Newspaper of Cloverport, KY by clicking on this ~ link ~.

The Breckenridge News is a wonderful source for me to discover and learn of the daily happenings of my ancestors and extended family members.

I'm assuming you are using the Kentuckian Digital Library. I used it to solve one of my ten-year old brick walls. I love reading about the items our ancestors thought were "newsworthy".

Yes, Kathy, I am using the Kentuckian Digital Library (link above) and it is wonderful. I love sitting and reading the daily news of what our ancestors were up to! I am hoping too it will tear down my great grandmother Louella Jarboe's brickwall . . . I keep reading and hoping!
Thank you for visiting my blog.

So classic small-town "news." I've seen newspapers in small towns even today that celebrate what was important in individuals' lives. It's more interesting to me than finding which celebrity is cheating on another! Thanks for your comment on my blog post! I look forward to reading about your grandfather's "work book."
