From a special section of the Waldron News newspaper of 23 April 1981, consisting of interviews of Scott County citizens 80 Years of age and over. The interviews were done as part of a celebration of the Bank of Waldron's 80th anniversary.


Elves Thomas, wife of the late Fred Thomas, is 89 years of age, she was born in Scott County on January 12, 1895, to George and Willie (Greer) Thomas. She has lived all her life, prior to entering Pinewood Nursing Home, in the Winfield Community. She attended Rurual School West of Winfield and completed the equivalent of the 8th grade. She attended Waldron First Baptist Church. Mrs. Thomas said she is blind and unable to read, but would get someone to read this publication to her, and she certainly appreciated the courtesy of the Bank of Waldron and the people of Scott County.
