Categories by county[edit]

There are a number of red-linked categories relating to populated places in America, e.g. Category:Unincorporated communities in Estill County, Kentucky. I propose to create some of these over the next few days, if there are no objections. All the best: Rich Farmbrough22:55, 12 August 2014 (UTC).

Affluence in the United States[edit]

Please see Talk:Affluence in the United States#Good article review request. I think the article has strayed from its purpose, but I may be considered biased. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 14:24, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Review information and create chat to shared information about universities in ohio, to help people.[edit]

I found a university that i couldn't find in the list that appear in this ohio universities list from wikipedia. Russ college of engineering and technology. more over there is in this page a list of universities of different areas, but there is no place for the industrial area. Another idea is that it can appear a link, that help people to find and shared information about different questions related with any university in ohio, maybe it is useful for the people who is looking for this type of information. thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:59, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

secretary of state - louisiana list[edit]

I looked through the list and did not find J. H. Hardy listed. I found a document on ebay signed by him as Louisiana's secretary of state dated 6/15/1868 in the "92nd" year of our independence. If you google J.H.Hardy Louisiana secretary of state you will also find a reference to him in a NY Times article.

I assume you are referring to Secretary of State of Louisiana#List of Secretaries of State. It makes it easier when you provide the link. I did a quick check and I can find enough to start a stub article at the least.
James Hamilton (J.H.) Hardy was the Louisiana Secretary of State under Governor James Madison Wells. I am not sure what is going on with the list. Hardy was nominated for the office of secretary of state by the Democratic State Convention in New Orleans on October 3, 1865. He was elected November 6, by vote of 20,869 to 4,881. He served until removed from office a short time by General Joseph A. Mower on November 21, 1867. The order was rescinded by General Ulysses S. Grant on November 22, and he was reinstated December 19, 1867, by General Winfield Scott Hancock. This was likely political in nature as Governor Well was removed June 3, 1867, a little over 5 months earlier.
Hardy lost re-election in April 1868 and was removed from office a second time on June 27, 1868, by order of General Robert C. Buchanan. This is referenced here and publications as references "Acts Passed by the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana at the Session of the Second Legislature January 22, 1866 here, in Frence; here, 1867; here, and certified acts concerning "Black codes" in 1865 here.
I assume (yea I know about that) the J.H. could be a throw-off but I have no idea how other (unreferenced) names could be used in his place and he was omitted. Stanislas Wrotnoski (Democratic (Unionist)) 1865-1866 (can not be right) was probably an appointed (the Unionist part) replacement during the time Hardy was removed from office and George E. Bovee (Republican) 1866-1972 was voted in as his successor. I will have to look at this more to see what happened. HOWEVER, the information I am providing is references whereas what is in the article is not. Otr500 (talk) 07:00, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
