Mills County Tribune, May 6, 1915

      A reprint of an article from the October 1899 Mills Tribune giving the names of most of the "Old Men of the Last Generation" living in and around Glenwood at the time, compiled by the late M. G. Edwards. The ages are as of 1899 and the dates, though not explained, seem to be the year they settled in Mills County.
