Hello Olin,

I doubt if there are any extant papers from the 1860's, for the area you're researching, but I'll have to check the library and see what they have. Not many Florida papers survived the 1860's, and the collections are incomplete and scattered for the 1880's and early 1900's. I use the University of Florida's library, and they do have an online catalog for the old papers, but I don't fully trust it, or more truthfully, I don't always trust myself. I always double check the microfilm cabinets, just to make sure.
I should be able to get back with you Sunday or Monday.
Chris
