Carmi, Illinois, 1816-1966 : Sesquicentennial (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Carmi, Illinois, 1816-1966: Sesquicentennial I was born in Lowry Hay's log cabin near the Little Wabash River. It was February 8, 1816 - a cold, raw day. The Winter wind moaned through cracks in the cabin. Close by, the grist mill's water wheel creaked as it turned. My christening came on a bright April day. On the sixteenth people met at the log house of John Craw. Dr. Josiah Stew art was there. With him were Daniel and Lowry Hay. Leonard White arrived. The county had been named for him. Now it was time to name the town - me! I am told that many names were sug gested. Just who opened the Bible I do not know. Perhaps it was the Rev. John C. Slocumb, a Methodist minister. Genesis Exodus Numbers Joshua 18 First Chronicles In all those passages one finds the name of the son of Reuben, the grand son of Jacob, the nephew of Joseph. And so, a log cabin settlement in the forest was named Carmi. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
