Southern Crittenden County News: Oct. 30, 2008

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

Attendance at Sunday School at Seven Springs was 61, with several more arriving for preaching. Miss Paula Patton's Sunday School class enjoyed a trip to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. Attending were Isaac Kennedy, Faith and Alex Conner, Jonathan and Madeline Downing, Laken Hunt and Aliyah Frutiger.

Thanks to Brenda Underdown who shared this obituary from the Jan. 9, 1908 issue of The Crittenden Record Press: "W.L. Bennett Dead. Dycusburg has suffered another severe blow to her business enterprise by the death of W.L. Bennett, who was familiarly known as 'Bud.' He died of blood poisoning which resulted from a cut he received on his foot only a few days ago, otherwise he was in good health. Mr. Bennett was a dealer in tobacco and general merchandise and was always at the front of any thing for the advancement of Dycusburg. He will be missed. His wife, a sister of Prof. Glass, survives, also several children." W.L. Bennett's brother was beaten by the Night Riders the next month in February 1908. His wife was Julie Elizabeth Glass-Bennett.

The Dycusburg Community Group will be distributing candy for Halloween on Friday in Dycusburg.
