Florence Boatright (Dec. 15, 1905 - July 10, 1996)
William J. and Florence Boatright each belonged to a number of local organizations over many years and both were members of the Putnam County Historical Society. Florence was also the Society's first and only president from 1949 to its temporary demise in the 1980s. She was also a member of DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) and William was a member of SAR (Sons of the American Revolution).
Between them, they organized a wealth of historical information on different local families. This information is indexed and cross-referenced by family name into 656 folders. The information in the folders consists of nearly anything and everything the Boatrights were able to gather together over the years.
