Who was the first child born in your township? This question was asked of Democrat readers several weeks since and the first and only reply received thus far is from our good friend "Uncle Baz" Thomas of Oak Flat, Washington township. The first child born in that township was his son, Benjamin P. Thomas, his birth occurring in a plank house on Peyton Creek where the venerable father yet resides. For more than 41 years this house has served as the postoffice for that community, Uncle Baz acting as postmaster throughout all those years. Among other settlers residing in the community at that time Uncle Baz recals L.M. Taylor, Joe Jacks, Jim Vernon, John Emmett, Page Hatchett, T.J. Archer and W. Whitmire. The first school attended by young Thomas was taught by W.H. Wynn, the school house being located on the mountain near location of present school house in Dist. No. 43. Upon reaching manhood's estate he married Miss May Hensley. For a number of years prior to his death in 1914 he was engaged in the mercantile business at Leslie. His widow and four children survive. Who will give us a history of the first birth in another township?

The 16th of February Aunt Sarah Hatchett, nee Harrison, providence permitting, will have the exceptional privilege of celebrating her 78th anniversary, her birth occurring in Hardin County, Tenn., Feb. 16th, 1846. Her residence in Van Buren County dates from 1852. She is the mother of eight children, seven of whom survive and with one of whom, Mrs. D. A. Patton, she makes her home. There is much we would like to say concerning the life and deeds of this venerable lady, but time and space precludes in this connection.

I was 73 years old March 5th, was born and reared in Van Buren County and thin there is no other county like it, says Mrs. S. A. Goats of Copeland on a postcard addressed the Democrat.

Tuesday was Mrs. W.T. Davis' 65 birthday anniversary and in honor of the occasion she entertained at dinner the families of her two daughters resident of Clinton, Mesdames Fraser and Koone.

Last week's list of birthdays contained the names of twins Dewel and Jewel Shannon, children of Mr. and Mrs. Will Shannon of Choctaw township. This week we have two others Bessie and Hessie Gardner of near Copeland. Who knows of other twins in the county born in March?

Van Buren County Democrat
March 21, 1924

Dear Mr. Oldham: March 31st is my birthday; was born in 1886. My youngest son, Lowell, was born March 31st, 1920. He is a fine baby, of course full of life and loves baby chicks. Good Wishes. A. B. O'Neal, Scotland.

In reporting the date of her birth Mrs. Sam Culpepper remarked that she had a twin sister, Mrs. Ant Evans, also a cousin of same age, but these had quit having birthdays. Mrs. Evans, who makes he home with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Rainey, now lives at Memphis. Mr. Rainey being employed on the News Scimitar.

In sending in the date of her birth, March 8th, 1875, Mrs. Belle Burnett of Cleveland says she is a native of Alabama but has lived in Van Buren and Conway counties since 1860, excepting 11 months spent in Bradley County. Mrs. Burnett says she was married in 1894 and is the mother of fifteen children, eight of whom are now living.

In sending the Democrat the date of her birthday, March 16th, Mrs. J. O. Massey, nee Morgan, says the 7th of March was also the anniversary of her marriage. After 17 years of married life she says that neither she nor her husband have yet grown tired of sharing each other's joys and sorrows. Here's hoping our friends will live to enjoy many happy returns of their marriage anniversary.

Mrs. W. O. Fox of the Weaver Creek neighborhood writes the Democrat that she was 54 years old the 25th and that she had been in the county less than four years, but wished she had been here longer as she liked this part of the state very much and it is home now.

In the list appearing this week is the name of a youth nearing his 87th mile post; J. L. Mizell of Craig Township. Twins, a brother and sister, are also listed from the same township. How many other twins in the county who were born in April we wonder.

Van Buren County Democrat
April 18, 1924
Mrs. Parlee Underwood whose anniversary is listed above, writes the Democrat that she has been a citizen of this county for 45 years, coming here from Sharp County, where she was born, when six years old.

In reporting the date of his birth, along with that of his mother, J. M. Perkins, says: My mother, Mrs. Ida Perkins, was born April 5th, 59 years ago, and has passed her entire life within one mile of where she was born. But during these 59 years she has moved five times.
