Cecile’s Scrapbook – Tenth Installment

Welcome to the tenth installment of  Cecile’s Scrapbook – the 1930′s scrapbook of my grandmother Cecile White Howard of Surry County, NC.  Missed the earlier posts in this series?  Catch up here: first installment, second installment, third installment, fourth installment, fifth installment, sixth installment, seventh installment, eighth installment, and ninth installment.

The page below features newspaper clippings from what I assume was the local paper for Dobson and/or Surry County, NC.  The wedding announcement  is that of Cecile’s cousin Thomas Holyfield.  Many great Surry County names are found in the sports articles.
