Southern Crittenden County News: Oct. 13, 2008

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

Attendance at Seven Springs was 49 on Sunday. Bro. Don Guess preached that day as Bro. Lonnie Knight suffered a heart attack last week. The congregation, friends and family are prayerful for a quick recovery.

Deer season is in full swing in the southern part of Crittenden County as there was an abundance of hunters to be seen in the area.

The annual L.B. and Sarah (Parsley) Patton reunion was held Oct. 12 at the Fredonia Lion's Club Building. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon of fellowship. Those signing the guest register included: Ronnie and Jo Patton; Beverly Patton; Ray and Wanda Patton; David and Edna Macon; Dot Young; Minnie Nell Shewcraft-Martin; Jarvis Morrow; David and Kathy Woodrum; Jerry and Gina Woodrum; Leslie and Molly Woodrum; Matthew T. Patton; Betty and Leon Hodges; Debra Hodges; Dottie Woodrum; Danny Hodges; Anna Jimenez; Barbara Ethridge; George, Carol abd Dylan Strilko; Jenny Patton and Aliyah Frutiger; Vicki King; Gilford and Joyce Patton; Quin, Amye, Auburn, Warron and Tayln Sutton; Naomi P. Ward; Janet Patton; and Ralph Patton. L.B. Patton (1836-1915) and his wife, Sarah (1840-1922) came to Crittenden County in 1878, settling on the Cumberland River near Dycusburg. Eight of their twelve children lived to adulthood and made their homes in Crittenden, Livingston, Caldwell and Lyon counties.

The next meeting of the Dycusburg Community Group will be Wednesday, Nov. 19, 5 p.m., at the home of Michelle Henderson. The focus topic of the meeting will be, "Money Saving Tips During Harsh Economic Times." Everyone is encouraged to attend and bring tips and tricks of their own for saving money and curbing spending.
