Travel Tuesday: Susan and Jesse Tarkington Visit Lewisburg, Tennessee

Nashville Tennesseean and Nashville American, 29 July 1915, page 4

In July 1915, Susan (Culley) Tarkington (the widow of my 2nd-great-grandfather's brother Joseph Tarkington) and her son Jesse traveled from Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee to Lewisburg, Marshall County, Tennessee.

While they were there, they visited Susan's daughter and Jesse's sister, Jennie Mae (Tarkington) Hooten. Jennie had married Walter Scott Hooten in 1911, and the couple lived in Lewisburg. Jennie and Walter's first child, Mary Kathryn Hooten, was born on 10 January 1913. At the time of the visit, Mary Kathryn was Susan's only grandchild.
