A Lost Mockingbird

Shopkeepers or businessmen were not the only people who appeared in the classified ad section of a newspaper.

John Tucking lost his mockingbird in 1866 and advertised for its return in the Daily Illinois State Journal.

Don't gloss over those search results from the classifieds. They may contain a little plumage you can add to your ancestor.
