I descend from the Ives family of Centralia, Lewis County, WA, which included Allen Ives and his son Charles Abrastus Ives. I assumed that it was a pretty safe bet that any hits for the surname Ives, made by Ancestry.com in a search of the local newspaper for 1907, would be for this family. Wrong! Instead, I got the story of the one-legged chicken belonging to a resident of Connecticut, which was used as a filler in the back pages. Don't get me wrong, it was very entertaining. Another example of the time-gobbling rabbit holes we all fall down in pursuit of our ancestors!
