CEMETERY, (Fiducia Rd off of Hwy 166) GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE
The Pulaski Citizen - 18 May 1876 - Aspen Hill
There is a man in this community whose history
is very remarkable. I refer to Mitchell Hazelwood, Esq. He was born in Charlotte
County, Virginia, on the 8th
day of June, 1791; came
to Giles County in 1818, and except for 9 years in Alabama, has resided here ever
since. He was married to Miss Maggie Strong, by whom he had 9 children, 6 of
whom are still living. He now has 6 children, 23 grandchildren, and 33
great-grandchildren–a family of 62 persons.
This seems like obedience to the divine command, “Be fruitful and multiply.” Mr. Hazelwood is now in his 85th year, but is remarkably sprightly for a man of his age. He never had a law suit in his life. He was a soldier in the War of 1812.
