Ogden, a rural community south of Rock Hill, was the home of A. L. Neely in the early part of this century. Neely wrote folksy poetry about his home, school, church, family and, more than anything, about farm life. In 1925 the State Publishing Company published Neely's writings in a slim book titled, "Ogden Jingles."
Neely made no attempt to disguise Ogden or its people. One of his poems was called, "Ogden Crop News." Neely's poems were printed in the Weekly Newsletter of the US Department of Agriculture, in the Woodman's magazine, "Sovereign Visitor," and in the Weekly Fairfax Enterprise.
