GenForum and the Carpenters

While I was doing a Google search on the surname Carpenter last week, one of the hits was on one of my wife's ancestor William Henry Harrison Carpenter.  It was an inquiry in GenForum dated 2005.  I took a chance and sent an email hoping that the email address on the inquiry was still good.  To my surprise I received an email back from a distant cousin of my wife.  This cousins great grandfather wrote articles for the Lebanon Democrat newspaper in Lebanon Tennessee using the pen name "The Observer".  The cousin sent to us copies of transcripts from some articles dated 1891, 1896, 1900 and 1904.  What a joy it is to add these articles to our Carpenter Family files.
