This is one of the scrapbooks that inspired me to start the Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. Attributed to Minnie Kenyon, this includes obits from Sullivan, Jackson, and Rutland Townships and the surrounding townships of that area.
These obituaries are presented in scrapbook order. I can't think of a better way of understanding a community than by reading an obituary scrapbook.
