70 Years Ago

“Aunt” Delia Qualls celebrates her 87th birthday
Mrs. Delia Qualls celebrated her 87th birthday last Sunday, December 6th. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren arrived at her home, two miles east of Livingston, with baskets and boxes filled with chicken, turkey, ham, gravy, dressing, salads, cakes, and pies, making a truly bountiful birthday dinner.
“Aunt” Delia as she is commonly called, has not been in very good health for the past year but enjoyed the occasion very much.
She had an excellent memory of pioneer days and was very happy to have all her folks with her for the day.
Those present were the Qualls, Eubanks, and Verbles of Livingston and the Webbs and Spencers of Crossville.
