Since opening this year’s season in March, the Fayette County Genealogical Society has enjoyed several successful historical presentations about Fayette County and its people. The society has been pleased with the community’s interest. It seems that the stories are best told by the ones who have actually lived here and been a part of this county and a part of the history.
That trend will continue at our next regularly-scheduled meeting this month. Deputy Robert A. Russell has written a book recording the history of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, and the sheriffs and the deputies who have been a part of that history. The title of the book is, “I Solemnly Swear.”
Robert “Bob” plans to talk on what motivated him to write his book. He will also share some chosen excerpts with those in attendance. In addition to the evening’s program, Bob will be available to sign a book for you if you would like to own and read one.
The meeting is open to all society members and members of the community on Monday, June 19 at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the Carnegie Library, 127 S. North St., Washington Court House. Please use the doors on the St. Colman Catholic Church side of the building.
