My father's family lived in Australia, and wanted grandmother's parents in England to visit. Great grandparents decided to visit friends in Clinton, Indiana before proceeding to San Francisco to sail for Australia. While in or near Clinton, great grandmother was struck by lightning, but not killed. My father's family left Australia to be with her in Indiana, and stayed. This would have been in 1922. My father went to grade school there, and they eventually moved to Lansing, Michigan. My father's name was Thomas C. Watson. Does anyone know of any internet access to newspaper articles from that period, or perhaps school records?
