I am blowing the dust off of these old images of the Broome family and allied family members to reveal the identities and likenesses of those individuals who may never have been seen by their descendants. I hope that by posting these images and names that some of their descendents will have the joy of discovering more about their ancestors. (The John Thomas Broome family images are seen in the previous post.)
It is also fascinating to see how people lived and what was important to them, so these images are interesting in their own right to be viewed by everyone. I hope you enjoy them!
Walter Hurt was appointed the Postmaster in Winona, Mississippi in 1893 and was the City Editor of the Meridian Dispatch in Meridian, Mississippi according to the 1913 Meridian City Directory.
W. Harvey Hurt would grow up to run a newspaper in Waynesboro, Mississippi (like father, like son). He was also instrumental in bringing a hospital to the Waynesboro area.
Mercy Broome Harvey was the mother of Addie Harvey and Sam Harvey. She was the sister of John Thomas Broome (from the previous post).
