Carriage Shop Burns

Another neat discovery on the newspaper archive atGenealogyBank, again on W. A. Rampley of York, Pennsylvania.

This article from October of 1899 in the Philadelphia Inquirer indicates that Rampley's carriage factory burned on 11 October 1899. Next goal is to try and find him in the 1900 census as hopefully he's still there.

Might work this up for an issue of Casefile Clues, not yet certain.
