My grandparents, John and Elizabeth Bradshaw, managed a hotel in Kentucky – Loraine Mineral Wells Hotel in Campbellsville, KY.  John managed the hotel from May-September 1927.

I have a copy of the ledger from the hotel.  In this ledger, there are many names of the guests who stayed at the hotel.

Your family may have stayed at this type of establishment during this time period.  Take a look at the hotels that were close to them – they may have gone to the hotel for the mineral wells or springs at the hotel.  Check to see if there is a ledger of the hotel.  You may find the name of someone in your family.
