Miss Mahan Returns to the City

Miss Mahan Returns to the City
Nashville Globe – January 25, 1907
Pg. 4

Miss Belma Mahan, of the stenographic force of the Baptist Publishing House, returned from her home at Little Rock, Ark. , last Sunday night, and is now at her post of duty. Miss Mahan was called to the bedside of her father who has been very sick for the past two or three weeks. At the present writing he is much better and hopes are entertained for his speedy recovery.

My Note: Belma’s father’s name was Pleasant and her mother’s name was Almira. I found the family living in Little Rock Ward 5. Belma was born in November of 1884 and in 1900 had two living siblings, a sister named Mary and a brother named George. In the 1910 census, she is listed a a boarder in Nashville. Her father is still in Little Rock, but her mother has passed. Her sister Mary is now Mary Conway and has a daughter named Theodoria.
