      James PACK left yesterday for Oklahoma, and will attend a business school in Kentucky on his way and brighten up in bookkeeping, and accept a position in Oklahoma in that capacity.


      Note: Georgia Maude Quesenberry Maxfield, an 80 year old Tazewell resident (deceased), has written these recollections of early Tazewell County life as told to her by her great-grandmother and her grandmother. Her Recollections appeared in the Tazewell Newspaper sometime in the early 1980's. Georgia was the daughter of George & Mary Frances Burress Quesenberry.

      A Cape Becomes A Coffin

      Now, along about this time everywhere you would look there were posters and advertisements, every one just alike, "Go west, young man, go west." After Jim having talked it over with some of the older men in Pounding Mill, he decied this was the thing for him to do.

      Second Cousin Jim Pack left on the No. 5 train headed west on April 30, 1905, taking his ring with him and leaving Grandma and the rest of the families weeping. They all felt sure they were never see him again. They prayed for many years - Grandma prayed on 'til the very day she died, but they never heard from young Jim again, at least not that we know of. The woman writing this was his second cousin born the next day after Jim left. Her real name is Maudie Georgia Quesenberry, but it was changed later to Georgia Maude Quesenberry. She married a Scotch-Irishman named Robert Nathan Maxfield. At this writing she is still living.
