Pocahontas Star Herald
Star Herald Reporters of 1914
(by Lawrence Dalton)
This week we have come up withone of the clearest and most interesting of our old pictures yet published --- interesting, at least, to the Star Herald personnel and many others who remember these faithful writers of comunity newsletters for the Star Herald around 1914: C. M. Penn, Noland writer, furnished us with the picture and he identifies the group as, 2 men in front, left, Green G. Davis (Ingram writer), and Jeff Cavenar (Elevenpoint writer); second row, left to right, B. F. Sisson and Mrs. Sisson (Noland and Hoover's Landing writers); L. F. Johnson (Alberta writer); standing, left to right, Marion Cox (Harmony writer), Mr. Dotty (Middlebrook writer), Rufe Mock, then Dee Mock (Demun, Maynard and Ravenden Springs writers), Eddie Sparkman (Reyno and Biggers writer), C. M. Penn (Noland writer). Mr. Penn stated that the occasion for the picture was that Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Hinton, editors at that time, had invited the group to town for a feast. The banquet was held at a public meeting hall located in the old J. W. Presley building, located upstairs over what is now White River PCA office. The photo was made at the studio of one of the finest photographers ever to live in Pocahontas, the late G. F. Lemmons. Mr. Penn stated that he believes the only writer for the Star Herald at that time, who was not present for the picture was Mr. Talbott, Maynard writer (father of Harry Talbott) of Pocahontas.
