Feeling young

Filed under: General — Erwin @ 3:43 pm

An article in the local newspaper:

Spurling grew up in Cato and attended the rock schoolhouse. On earlier tours, he shared stories told by Johnny Coonrod, a descendant of Woolery Coonrod, Sr., the first settler in Cato in 1854.

Cato is, according to the article, the first settlement in Crawford County. That’s just another reminder of how relatively young this country is, sheesh!
