I wish to say that the News is a very welcome weekly visitor, as it b rings back to my mind many things and names with which I was once familiar; one with whom I became acquainted over 80 years ago, Prudy Boord Minnick, when we were kids at school. I venture to say that I am the only person living who was born on the territory of Fountain County before the county came into existance on the 25th day of December, 1825, by an act of the legislature of the State of Indiana and I was born on the 3rd day of September of the same year, which makes me three months the older. I was a citizen of MillCreek Township 32 years. Was constable three terms and township trustee four terms. Give my love to the old and all the good old people of the county.
