"A. J. Tomlinson. This enterprising and successful young farmer is well and favorably known to all the residents of Polk Township. He was born in Moro Township, this county, in 1856, the fifth of a family of nine children born to Perry and Emeline (Gaither) Tomlinson, who claim North Carolina as their native State. Our subject was reared in the village of Chambersville, and worked in his father's tan-yard until the age of sixteen years, attending the common schools a few months each year. When he was sixteen years of age his father moved to Camden, where he lived for a short time and then came to Calhoun County and bought the farm, of which our subject still owns a part. He was married at the age of twenty years to Miss Mollie I. Means, a daughter of T. N. Means. His father then gave him eighty acres of land, on which he erected a good substantial dwelling, and has cleared forty-five acres, which he now has under an excellent state of cultivation. In 1886 he donated forty acres of land near former farm, and soon moved to the new place, which he has since made his home; on this place he has cleared about twelve acres, built a good house, outbuildings, etc. He raises a variety of crops, but devotes his attention principally to raising cotton and corn. Mrs. Tomlinson is a worthy member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. To the union of Mr. and Mrs. Tomlinson seven children have been born, all of whom are living, viz: Willie, Hattie, Emma, Lennie, Harvey, Vergie and Ethel. Mr. Tomlinson takes an active interest in politics, and votes with the Democratic party. He is an earnest advocate of schools and of all worthy enterprises."
