This volume of the Rhea County Newspapers is fragmented in part as the information is found in four different newspapers, i.e. “The Dayton Herald”, “The Dayton Star”, “The Dayton Enterprise” and “The Dayton Christian Advocate.” Some of the information came from William G. Allen papers especially those that contained his articles. There are hundreds of names in this volume and they tell a unique story of the local residents. Included are the advertisements which give a different side to the history of the area.

 

Example

“D. M. Blevins, one of the oldest and most prominent citizens of Meigs county, died at his home at Cottonport Monday, lacking but three days of bineg 79 years of age.
Two brothers and two sisters survive, to wit: W. P. Blevins, of this city, H. F. Blevins, of Oklahoma City, Mrs. Sarah Locke, of Chattanooga and Mrs. Malissa Holt of Los Angeles, Cal.
Three children, Hoyal, Oscar and Miss Bonnie, are bereaved of [a] fond father.
His life long companion is left to mourn her departed husband.” [12 October 1912]
