Twice-Told Tuesday: Happy Birthday!

by Tonia Kendrick on October 29, 2013 in Family Stories


“October 28—Mrs. Mollie Clayton, Elaca Hemphill, Maudie Sue Forrest, Maurine Springfield.”1

The “Elaca Hemphill” who is being remembered is actually Alacia Hemphill. Her birthday was October 29, rather than October 28.2 Nevertheless, I love the fact that the newspaper published birthdays!

Twice Told Tuesday is an occasional series featuring family-related articles republished from old books, magazines, and newspapers. To see all posts in the series, click here.
