One trick for searching newspapers for information is to look for articles other than birth, wedding, and obituaries. Instead, look for wedding anniversaries and birthdays. The longer an individual lived or was married, the more likely there was to be an article about the event. I have to confess, though, that I found this while searching for William J. Hardy.
This article about my great-grandmother Louise (Davis) Dendy's nephew, William Thomas Hardy, is rich in family detail. On the surface it does not seem to be about my direct ancestors. However, when the Hardys moved from East Texas to West Texas, my great-great grandparents, Eli Van Buren Davis and Mary LaVaney Yarberry, also made the move. In her old age, my great-great grandmother live with her daughter, Mary Elizabeth, and son-in-law, William J. Hardy. Thus, William Thomas Hardy's recollections of his childhood are very pertinent.
