W.B. Vickers letters 1867-77
I have several letters written from 1867 to 1877 by William B. Vickers, a newspaper editor who lived in Indianapolis, Ind., and Greeley and Denver, Colorado, to his uncle Robert H. Hitch in Kentucky.

Does you have any biographical information about Mr. Vickers? The Colorado Historical Society has a Vickers folder but the building is under construction and files won't be available until late 2011.
Here's all I know. He married Margaret "Maggie" Muirson. They had four children, Frank, Jerome "Rome," Minnie and Edith.
The letters were among Hitch papers collected by Carra Sullivan Russell (1869-1949) of Ashland, Ky.
