The Jasper Newsboy
What's Inside this Collection.
The Jasper Newsboy was founded by E. I. Kellie and has been continuously printed since 1865. Jasper, Texas, was one of the original 23 Texas counties established when the Republic of Texas was created in 1836. George W. Smyth was Land Commisioner for the Republic of Texas, and he surveyed the first league of land in Jasper County and deemed it the "John Bevil League." Digital access to The Jasper Newsboy was generously supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under a TexTreasures grant.
