A look back

By Staff
Cold weather and illnesses of one kind or another are traditional subjects of news in local weeklies at this time of year.
1958-January 23, Robert Parker has returned to Alabama Polytechnic institute after being confined to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Parker, by illness.
1886-January 24, Seemingly incessant rains seem to have dramatically increased the number of people afflicted with the "miserable grippe." They have also made Hartselle's streets just about as muddy and sloppy as they could possibly be.
1923-January 25, Catston N. McDaniel, black leader and educator, is ill at his residence. Mr. McDaniel was instrumental in raising funds for the Morgan County Training School here.
1998-January 26, Dr. Vernon L. St. John, president of the AEA during 1967-69 and a member of the State Senate from Morgan County when the education sales tax was enacted, is growing increasingly infirm. When he was younger, Dr. St. John was also very active in the state Baptist convention. On his last birthday he was 92.
1943-January 27, Rev. John D. McClanahan celebrated his 99th birthday today. Recently failing health has kept him from walking to town every day to sit on the "old soldier's bench" and talk with his friends.
1907-January 28, John M. Chenault is very ill at his home. His wife and ten children are ministering lovingly to his needs. Two of his sons, C. S. and F. L. Chenault, are prominent physicians in New Decatur. Mr. Chenault is 77.
1905-January 29, Mrs. Eliza Hartselle, one of the best known and most popular old residents of this part of the country, is said to be quite ill at the home of her daughter in Mississippi.
1909-January 29, The skies are full of snow clouds and it looks very much like North Alabama will get another coating of snow very soon. If this happens it will be the second time this winter. (Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart)
