Mrs. Cook Celebrates her 84th Birthday
Mrs. Julia Ann Cook, 84 years of age, on November 3, celebrated
her birthday Sunday at the home of her son-in-law, Louis K. Bilbrey,
near Allons. A similar celebration was held at this place one year
ago, at which time it was resolved that a repetition be had at the
same place in 1934, and at each succedding birthday of Mrs. Cook,
so that this occasion has been anticipated with much pleasure.
At one o'clock p.m., an assembly of 160 had gathered, coming from
Clay, Cumberland, Jackson, Putnam, and White Counties. Many of the
visitors bring baskets and other containers filled with food which
blended with the copious supply prepared at the home made a most
attractive table both in point of quantity and variety. The cake
which had been prepared by a niece, Lucy Price Mitchell, was placed
at the head of the long table, and contained 84 candles which completed
the table arrangments.
