Quite some time ago, I picked up a box of photographs and other memorabilia at a yard sale, and I started posting a few of the photos and clippings here, hoping to connect with a family member, which did happen, but I never meant to let so much time go by before following up. I am hoping to connect with that person again, and send her everything that I can.
Until then, here is a scan of Pauline Wimp’s April 1936 diploma in Kiowa County, Colorado.

Just over a year ago, I picked up a box of photographs at a yard sale. (they did not belong to the family who was selling them)
Off and on, I’ve worked on trying to locate information about the ‘inhabitants’ of this box, researching the census, etc., but lately I’ve just not taken/made/had the time to do much with it.
So I’ve decided to start posting some of the photographs and other info here, on the off chance that someone will find the posts and I can at last re-unite at least some of the memories with the family who will love to have them.
The names in the box include Wimp and Newland, and the towns include Blackwell, Oklahoma, Wellington, Kansas, and Eads, Colorado.
And yes, if we are able to re-unite these family treasures with their family, I’ll be posting about it right here!
