Newspaper Clippings - Peotone, Illinois 1907

This is a page from the Peotone Vedette that I mentioned in my last post.  I won't transcribe the entire "Notice of Sale" here, but if you're interested in it, let me know and I will send it to you.  The Peotone Vedette had the kind of local social news that can be a great help sometimes.  


The Peotone Vedette, October 18, 1907
