Prentiss County Newspaper Clippings

We are very fortunate that The Banner-Independent, Booneville, Mississippi has given us permission to post articles of historical nature to our webpage.

Jo Carolyn Beebe has transcribed a lot of them from papers that she had with her. A very big boon for us is their Centennial Issue.

In the 1880s we know there was another newspaper in Booneville - The Booneville Pleader Newspaper. Vicki Roach has very graciously transcribed and sent clippings from 1881, 1882, 1884 and 1886.
