If you are in position of a piece of Bay County's history, whether its a photo, document, or in your memory -- please consider sharing it sharing it on Bay-Journal. Most recently, we received a contribution from a lady in Ohio whose had an ancestor from Bangor Township which she was finally able to find on one of our history pages. She is now sharing portions of a diary written by Mary (Culver) Hemminger in 1863 while her husband, Isaac, was a soldier in the Civil War. Because of her contribution, we come a little closer to understanding the environment of these times and our ancestors. The diary may be read in the Heritage Library, Writing Section at: http://www.bay-journal.com/bay/1he/writings/diary-hemminger-mary.htmlhttp://www.bay-journal.com/bay/1he/writings/diary-hemminger-mary.html
