The Glenvme l)emocrat/Pathf'mder July N, fIN- Registration Reminder With this week's issue, the Democrat/Pathfinder beus a campaign to urge all unregistered voters in the county to resister to vote. Throughout the newspaper you will notice out little reminders. With all the patriotic fervor surrounding the celebration of our country's bicentennial, it would seen that more people would want to take part in one of the fundamental processes of our democracy. It takes less than five minutes of your time to visit the county clerk's office and resister. You must have been a resident of Gilmer County for 30 days. The last day to register to vote in the Nov. 2 general election is Oct. 1. Our American system insures that every citizen has the right to complain about our government. But unless you register to vote, you can't do anything about it. Your vote does make a difference. Get into the Spirit of '76 by registering to vote. BARBARA WILLIAMS A A A A v v v v Extensien Agent It is lots of fun being a 4-H agent. I get to learn about cattle {like which end has what purpose}, hold rather excitable lambs, and go to state judging contests. A crew from Gilmer County made the trek to Hardy County last Sunday for the State 4-H Livestock Judging Contest-twelve of us, to be exact. The senior team, Myron "Boots" Bailey, Bob Hatton, Jeff Bailey and Gary Bush did pretty well. They placed fifth in the senior division, and Gary was awarded the medal for high scoring individual in the swine judging area. Steve Ellyson, Rodney Somerville, and Diane Somerville kept pace, though, winning the junior division. Steve, too, came home with an extra medal for his ability to discern various qualities of sheep. We had yet a third team-another trio of juniors, consisting of Kathy Ellyson, Kim Cain and Kim Butcher. This was a new experience for both of the Kims, but I think they enjoyed it. In case you caught-and wondered about-Myron's new nickname, it seems that when he was in Oklahoma, The Man decided to acquire a more impressive set of hoofies. Strutting into an expensive-looking shop, Myron announced that he wanted to see the best pair of boots in the house. He didn't get exactly what he'd expected, though, since the pair of lizard boots they brought him included a $350.00 price tag. Never at a loss for words, our man Myron cooly surmised the situation and decided that actually he was in much more immediate need of a good pair of work boots. We're even, now, Myronl Schoolcrafts pre-date 1780 900 Bryn Mawr St. Orlando, FL 32804 Tothe Editor, I noted your report on the Schoolcraft family reunion in the Glenville Democrat and have found evidence that the Schoolcraft family predates 1780 in settling in what is now West Virginia. In McWhorter's Border Settlers of Northwestern Virginia, Chapter XIII, he says James Schoolcraft obtained certificate for "400 acres on the main fork of Fink Run, adjoining the lands of John Schoolcraft, to include his settlement made in 1774." A certificate was also granted to Matthew Schoolcraft for "400 acres on Land Fork (evidently Sand Fork, in Lewis County) of the Monongahela, to include his settlement made in 1774." There is considerably more data on this family. If you are interested, write to me at the above address. Sincerely, Alyce Boanett Cox Charter on the wall To the Editor, I was amused at your search for the City Charter. I was elected Mayor in 1943. One of the first things I did. was to write to the Keeper of the Records at Richmond. Va.. for a copy of Glenville's Charter. They supplied it for $1. I had the charter framed and placed on the wall of the Mayor's office for one and all to see, It remained on the wall until 1973. It seems that the last two city administrations have quietly made an effort to remove any evidence of any previous administration. l.W. BOUll 'Glenville's dill hme' To-the Editor, This is to inform you of the death of my husband, D. Cecil Hays. He passed away Dec. 24, 1975, just one day short of his 90th birthday. He always enjoyed reading the Democrat and although things have changed in the forty years we have been away, we still think of Glenville as our first home and love to go back. I've enclosed seven dollars for my subscription for another year. Please send to the same address. Sincerely, Mrs. D.C. Hayl Starkville.
