Summary
This collection includes documents and photographs collected by Lois York, as well as her ancestors, regarding the history of Hendricks County, especially Coatesville where she lived. The Woman's Literary Club of Coatesville published their membership list and programs in little booklets from 1913 through 1964. Edith Sharp Ryner, Lois York's mother, was a long-time member. Rev. Cecil J. Sharp, a pastor and leader in religous education in the Christian Church, was the uncle of Lois York. Clark H. Tanner wrote his thesis on Rev. C. J. Sharp in 1976. There are several historic oversized photographs and one legal document signed by Andrew Jackson in a separate folder
