Herald receives 100-year-old atlas
Mary Duerkop developed a fondness for Pierce County.
"She loved history and she loved Pierce County," said son Larry.
Added Bill, another son: "When we would go on rides (in the county), she'd point out everything. Who lived where and what they did."
When Mary died in 2006, Larry and Bill, along with their sister Patty, were going through her mother's belongings and found a Pierce County Atlas that was dated from 1908.
