Friday night experiences
It was sort of a throwback weekend for me.
Friday night I drove to New Albany High School, where the Byhalia Indians were set to battle the Bulldogs in an important District 2-4A football game.
Close to Nowhere
I’d never heard of Teasdale in Mississippi or anywhere else until I went to a quilt show there this past Friday.
It’s a very small town just outside Pope, which is a small town just outside Batesville, which is not a small town.
ROTC essential to maintaining world’s best-led military
A year before the United States formally entered World War I, President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the National Defense Act, expanding the National Guard and establishing a program to prepare young men and women for military service.
Letter to The Editor
Ninety-nine years ago this week, a young lady named Mary Valentine Carpenter passed away in Marshall County, after a long, courageous bout with tuberculosis. This lady was my great-grandmother. We have heard the news about her illness and death passed down via oral history in our family.
Through family history research, we have learned that Mary was laid to rest in the Pittman Cemetery in an unmarked grave. On the 100th anniversary of her death, next October 4, we’d like to place a gravestone at the site of her grave.
I am writing to ask that if anyone might have any information about the Pittman Cemetery (listed on maps as being located on Jordan Cemetery Road) if they’d be willing to share that information. Our family would be greatly appreciative.
You can reach me by phone at 865-556-5013, or by email at NewsCat63@gmail.com, or by mail at Jeff Gary, 409 Moser Lane, Knoxville, TN 37934. Many thanks for your time and consideration.
