Linked By Lengnicks: Lena Wood Lengnick

March 4, 2015

Edward Jr.’s parents were Emil Edward and Pauline (Lena) Wood Lengnick.

Lena presented a paper to the Clover Club, and you can find a copy of her work, “Beaufort Memoirs” at the Beaufort District Collection in the Beaufort County Library in Beaufort. I’ve published bits from it here on the blog.

Because the Blog is My Scrapbook, Part Two: Beaufort District Collection

August 24, 2014

I had a great plan this morning.

I was going to do some cleaning.

The cleaning extravaganza stopped with the first stack of papers.  With that, I give you the brochure of the Beaufort County Public Library’s Beaufort District Collection.  The BDC people were the folks that have the obituaries for the Daniel and Agnes Mann family, and also the link for the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps, which helped me find Agnes Mann’s house on Craven Street.
