Elam-Area News

The correspondents or editors for The Farmville Herald were very creative in the naming of their columns that ran in the papers in the first decade of the twentieth century.  To keep pace with their creativity, this column should be called “Elam Elucidations.”

While browsing through some old newspapers in the 1900 to 1904 time frame, I found the names of communities long gone from the memory of today’s county citizens. The family names mentioned in some of the columns give a hint as to in what area the community might have been.  Many of the column names refer to post offices that operated out of private homes or small country stores.

Elam-Area News

“A fireman's life is one big surprise,

Usually he laughs, sometimes he cries.

There's always stress, toil and strife,

Hoping he's good enough to save just one life.

 

“His wife understands when he misses dinner,

If he runs out of church, don't think he's a sinner.

Answering a call is tops on his list,

Regretting each one he's ever missed….”  -- Daniel S. Driscoll
