old newspaper articles 1923-1924

The Thomas Alvin Smith family left the Blue Mountain community in Moffat County, Colorado in October of 1924. Their last couple of years there were tough. I recently searched microfilmed articles from the Craig Empire newspaper for the years 1923 and 1924 to learn more about those last two years. Living in Youghal and at times Cross Mountain, in addition to Thomas Alvin Smith was his mother Fannie Smith, his brother Ernest Smith, his sister Rosa Smith Fairchild, his sister Julia Smith Barton and the Robert Morris family You'll find transcribed clips from Youghal and Cross Mountain at this webpage:
