Travel Tuesday: Annie Gatlin and Ida (Gatlin) Andrews' Trip to Bowling Green, Kentucky

Nashville American, 22 August 1909, page 14

On 20 August 1909, my first cousin three times removed Annie Lee Gatlin and her aunt, my 2nd-great-grandfather's sister Ida Lee (Gatlin) Andrews, left Nashville and went to Bowling Green, Kentucky. They spent two weeks there. They were probably visiting my 2nd-great-grandfather's sister Lillie May (Gatlin) Bailey and her daughter Mary Elizabeth Bailey. Although Lillie and Mary were living in Nashville in 1910, they had lived in Bowling Green at least from 1899-1903, and they had returned to Bowling Green by 1912.


  1. Those old newspapers, what a gift to genealogists. I have a few of these items for my paternal grandfather's family.

  2. They really are! I have found so many interesting things in newspapers, and have learned a lot.
