E-mail from Jim Woodworth to Kim Fowles, 28 Sept 2006:

Good Evening -

I thought that I would share a picture of a home in Hazelton, Kansas, that my great grandparents lived in while my great grandfather worked in a local bank and also as a telegraph operator at the railroad station. My grandfather, Samuel B. Woodworth was born in Hazelton on 8/2/1888 and his sister, Fanny O. Woodworth was born on 7/18/1891.

If you could direct me somewhere to look for possible information on my family while they live there, I would appreciate it. My great grandparents were Elmer and Jane "Jennie" Woodworth.

Thanks -

"Hazelton was settled largely by families from Mercer County, Pennsylvania, who were persuaded to come west by the town's founders, J.O. Hazelton and A.H. Peck. Once a thriving community that boasted the Hazelton Collegiate Institute, Hazelton was badly depleted by the Oklahoma Land Run when many houses, hotels, and businesses moved into Oklahoma."
