Fair Play - Mr. Caleb A. Johnson, of Texas, a former citizen of this county, and father of Mrs. J. F. Thomas and Mrs. Lee Coggin, is spending some time here with them and among his old schoolmates. He visited the home of J. W. T. Abernathy Sunday evening, much to the pleasure of both. They went back to their earliest recollections, when old Sandy Ridge Church was an old split log schoolhouse, where both learned their ABC’s. Mr. Abernathy is in his eightieth year and Mr. Johnson is in seventy-ninth. Both of them were raised in this settlement and have raised large families of children are grown and have families of their own.
