    I’m trying to locate a court document of July 31, 1917 of a pension report for Laban Hartley who was living at Seymour at the time. How can I find this, I have an old faded copy that is hard to read and I would like to see a clear copy. Glen Hartley

    My maiden name was Delzell and my ancestors were some of the settlers of Webster County; specifically White Oak and Henderson. My grandparents were Fred and Magnolia Delzell and my grandfathers brother was Dr. Delzell, who was one of the founders of Henderson Academy. I have donated several items to the museum, but have never been there. I am planning a trip to the area in the near future and would like to visit the museum. Is it open 7 days a week?
