It is time to order A History of Marion County 1884.
     The Marion County Historical Society will reprint the History of Marion
County 1884, with the valuable index written by Roberta and Hurley Hagood.
This title has been out of print for several years and will be available
coming in early 2003.  This book is a 6 x 9 inch hard cover which contains
1096 pages of county history.  It is a must for anyone seriously interested
in Sam Clemens's early years. Sam himself owned a copy!
     Only a limited number of books will be available.  The book will sell
for $65.00 plus $5.00 shipping, until December 1, 2002.  After that the
price will go to $70 plus $5.00 shipping. To order your copy, send your
check with your name, address,  and telephone number to:
         Marion County Historical Society
         Box #1161
         Hannibal, Missouri 63401-1161

    This is the third time the historical society has reprinted the book. We
use all funds locally for history-related projects.  We are just now
completing the nomination for the Maple Avenue Historic District.  If you
have any questions you may Email me directly at [log in to unmask] .
    Please order a copy of this great book for yourself and be sure your
library gets a copy.
