Index To Newspaper Articles
When I have time, I transcribe or copy old newspaper articles. For Menard, there are no newspaper copies from the time period before 1915, so I sometimes travel to other counties to look through their pre-1915 archives since I've found most papers published news from surrounding counties. Please note that each transcription will source what newspaper it came from.
Also understand that I am placing newspaper articles online by "category". You will need to look at the birth index for birth announcements and the marriage index for marriage announcements, etc.

UPDATED INFORMATION: You can no longer contact the Menard News and Messenger for copies of older obituaries, newspaper stories, etc. On October 29th, 2009, the Menard newspaper reported that they had donated all their newspaper files to the West Texas Collection of the Porter Henderson Library at Angelo State University, San Angelo, Texas. For information on accessing these papers, contact the West Texas Collection at: (325) 942-2164

The "Breeze" was a short-lived, weekly paper, published by Columbus Redmon when he moved to McKavett.
The following newspaper articles were transcribed from a microfilm copy purchased from a California University. To date, these are the only copies of the Ft McKavett Breeze newspaper that I have seen....or know to exist.
