I chose 26 January 1869, the day my great-great grandfather Jacob J. Gress was born.
Top headlines were:
|1948 - Corky Laing rocker (Mountain)|
|1880 - Douglas MacArthur Little Rock AR, General of the Army (WWII), he did return!|
|1925 - Paul Newman Cleveland OH, racer/popcorn mogul/actor (Hud, Hombre, Hustler)|
|1928 - Eartha Kitt South Carolina, singer/actress (Catwoman-Batman)|
This is a really interesting and useful site, particularly if you are writing a book or report on a family member. The information from their birth or marriage date really makes the history come alive. I will definitely be using this more in the future.
