Five Generations of People Living Here
The death of Uncle Dick Folsom this week brought to mind a curious and rather rare fact in longevity. Mr. Folsom was the father of Mrs. Bert Fryer, she is the mother of Mrs. Claud Nail, and Mrs. Claud Nail has a daughter about five years old named Eathel Claudine. Thus four generations on that side are living.
The mother of Mrs. Tinnie Brewer is living in Texas; Mrs. Brewer is the mother of Mrs. D. O. Nail, who is the mother of Claud Nail, who is the father of Eathel Claudine Nail, thus making five generations alive on that side of the family.
Joel Nail, now living, is the father of D. O. Nail, who is the father of Claud Nail, who is the father of Eathel Claudine Nail, making four generations living on that side of the family.
Such remarkable longevity rarely occurs in a family.
