OLD SETTLERS ASSOCIATION

Persuant to a call published in the Warren and Henderson county papers, many of the old settlers in the two counties met at Young America on Saturday afternoon, January 27, 1872. The meeting was called to order by Col. S. Hutchinson, who stated the object to be the forming of a permanent organization of the old settlers of the two counties and to make arrangements for a social reunion to be held on the 22d day of February. All persons who had settled in the two counties previous to the formation of Henderson County were admitted to membership, save the editors of the papers in each of the counties, who were admitted to membership. It was also decided that officers should be a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. At the meeting held February 22d, committees were admitted to draft a constitution and by laws and to select officers for the ensuing year. The time for the annual reunion was fixed to be on the first Wednesday in June of each year.

The present officers are President, Col. Samuel Hutchinson; Vice-President James Tucker; Secretary, W.A. Grant; Corrresponding Secretary J.B. Patterson; Treasurer Wm. Hanna
