Interesting Family Relics

Articles of Furniture That Have Been in Use 75 Years.

Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Loveless a few days ago visited the old homestead of the late Johnny Smith, whose wife was Mr. Lovelessí sister. The place is near Cartersville and now occupied by Mr. James Smith, a son of Mr. John Smith, the old people having been dead for a number of years.

While looking about the house, Mr. Loveless espied some articles of furniture that had a familiar look to him; and to his nephew he said: ďI verily believe thatís my fatherís and Motherís old family dining table around which all of our family took their meals.Ē A tracing back of the history of the old table showed that it was brought here a piece of furniture when Mr. Nathan Loveless and his wife, who were among the countyís pioneers, moved to Bartow from South Carolina in 1845, and it has been in use since twenty years before that, which would make it seventy-five years old. A chest was observed was quite as old also a family clock. Mr. Loveless was much surprised when he found these familiar old articles in existence.
