About

The Thomson Advertiser began publication in 1866 out of the office of the Covington Enterprise. James Washington Anderson and James Delaney ran that printing press in Covington that also served other newspapers. By 1868, Jordan E. White was local editor of the Thomson Advertiser, which printed weekly. The newspaper supported the Democratic party and circulated every Saturday. White left the Advertiser in 1869 and was replaced at the editorial helm for a short period by W.C. Worrill. W. T. O’Neal replaced Worrill in 1870 and remained local editor for the paper until it ceased publication. In 1872, publishers of the Advertiser changed slightly as James Delaney left the business. Sion W. Hawkins joined Anderson at the Enterprise office. The Thomson Advertiser ceased publication in 1874 due to the increasing popularity of the McDuffie Journal.
