Workday Wednesday: J. S. Tarkington Seeks Employment as a Plantation Manager

In 1851, Joseph S. Tarkington placed an ad in the Franklin, Louisiana newspaper Planters' Banner, seeking employment as a manager in the planting business.

Planters' Banner, 29 November 1851, page 3

I suspect that Joseph S. Tarkington was the father of my 3rd-great-grandfather Joseph Tarkington.
