On the 1900 U.S. Census my Great Grandpa Dock went from not being able to read and write and 10 years later according to the 1910 U.S. Census he was able to read and write. Grandpa Dock was mentioned a few times in The Baldwin Times “Honor Roll” section of the paper for either having subscribed or renewed their subscription. I just think it was cool to see Grandpa Dock going from not being able to read or write to having a newspaper subscription.
