of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 1/22/1907.
Absolum Huffman and daughter, Mrs. "Tip" Campbell, returned last Wednesday
from a trip to Richwood, where they were waiting on the sick family of
Bob Marshall. The conveniences for traveling were not very good,
so "Uncle Absolum" who is about seventy five years old, built a John boat
at Burnsville and started rowing down the Little Kanawha, but luckily ran
across the "Return" at Glenville. He was making fine time and seemed
to be moving along as well as a boy in his prime.
