“James Jackson, who left recently for San Diego, Calif. where he will be stationed at the U. S. Naval Training center there, was honor guest at a supper his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Jackson, gave at their home before his departure.
Guests were Mr. and Mrs. Freeman King, Mrs. A. M. Rogers, Miss Eva Coffey, Miss Mary Lou Henson, all of Dalton; Misses Celia and Arminta Swiling, Misses Edna and Billie Butler, Miss Velmer Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Met Jackson and family, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Sampler, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Beetles and family, Mr. and Mrs. Olan Butler and family.”1
The article is chock-full of new and interesting information. Chiefly, that I have another relative who served in the Navy. I have a lot of people who served in the Army in various wars, but I’ve had little reason to delve into naval records, as I can recall only one other person who was in the Navy. Additionally, it’s fun seeing all the aunts, uncles and cousins who are listed as guests – and getting residence information for an “off-census” year.
