Charles Johnson Obituary Collection Coming Soon!

Posted on November 25, 2010 at 11:43 PM

This past June, I took a day off from work to attend the estate sale of Charles Johnson in Entriken.  Charlie ran the general store and post office in Entriken for many, many years.  I couldn't let the opportunity slip by without going to the sale.  I bought a few things, including a set of binders full of obituaries and funeral cards.  I am in the process of scanning the obituaries, and will have them up on the site in a little while.  I wish Santa would bring me a scanner that is faster and more user friendly!  I do regret that I left many photographs go at the sale.  I ran them up a ways, but quit.  At the time, I had no idea I was going to start this website, and now I kick myself for not going higher and getting those photos to share with everyone here.  There were many old photos - some were labeled and some weren't.  Did anyone happen to attend the sale and buy those photos?  I can only wish!  So, stay tuned, as I keep scanning away (and updating my own database as I go); I will let you know when the obituaries are posted.  Somewhere down the road, I will scan the funeral cards too.

Hey, Santa listened! He is mailing me a new laptop computer with Family Tree Maker already installed AND a new portable scanner! I will be set to go out and start researching...no more paper and pencil for me!

Would the auctioneer provide you the name of the person who won the bidding for the photos? Perhaps they only wanted some of thwe box and not all of it or would let you scan them.
