DID YOUKNOW?
by Gwen C Quickel
 
1.    The first  income tax imposed by the Federal government in 1861 was declared unconstitutional and was removed.                              .

2.    According to  the Department of Defense, 4,435 people died in battle in the Revolutionary War.

3.    Originally, some of the  Pilgrims set sail in the Speedwell, but it was unseaworthy and had to return to port.  The passengers were crowded onto the already packed Mayflower, and she set sail alone.

4. During the American Revolution when  the British invaded Philadelphia, the Liberty Bell was secretly removed from Independence Hall and taken by wagon to Allentown PA, where it hidden under the floor boards of a church.  Had the bell remained in the state house, it would have been melted down for British ammuition, as were all the other bells of the city.

            In correspondence with Mrs Joy Quimby Stearns, Olive AL  about Uriah Parker, Mrs Stearns wrote me on 10 Jul 1989:
 
"Your Creed Newsletter [p 4 Mar 1989] refers  to John Creed and wife, Susan Columbia Singer.  Susan Columbia is the daughter of Jefferson and Susan C (Quimby) Singer.   Susan (Singer) Creed was born  28 Oct 1856, married John Creed 31 Aug 1875 and died 6 Jun 1939 all in Bradley Co AR.   She was buried 7 Jun 1939 in Holly Springs Cemetery, Bradley Co AR.....

“My grandfather's first wife was Odella Creed---John T. Quimby."

 
 
SOONERS NOT SCOONERS
by Lou Randall
 
See Vol. 5, No. 1, pg. 12.  "Sooners" was the name given to those who illegally staked claims before the beginning of the OK land rush, not "scooners".  (They got there too soon.)  I see that this has been pointed out by Dr. Boyett.  It is really unimportant, but I always found the sooner story interesting. A scooner in addition to being an old ship is a 12-ounce glass of beer in Sydney pubs.
