Including the surnames Tapley, Drake, Page, Harrell, Odom, Claxton, Bush, and Schwalls from the U.S. Southeast; and Ranney, Hubbard, Hesser, Carter, Schoonover, and Ozmun/Ozman/Osman from the U.S. Northeast and Midwest
While doing some research at the Dublin, Georgia, public library, I came across this snippet from the October 22, 1935 edition of the Dublin Courier-Herald:
Mrs. John Drake was Emma Vermell Harrell Drake, my great-grandmother. There were three reasons I could deduce this: (1) Her husband was John William Drake; (2) She died October 19, 1935; and (3) She was buried at Poplar Springs. For the time, this is a very short obituary.
