Last Call for Payment
of Delinquent Taxes
Taxpayers Can Save Publication
Costs by Paying Bills Before
Owners of property in Moore coun
ty who have not yet paid their taxes
for 1937 will take notice that Novem
ber 7th has been set as the time
when the county will advertj.sf- the
delinquent tax list. Taypayers can
save themselves a lot of trouble and
annoyance and quite a bit of cost if
they will meet their obligations to
the county on or before November 5.
In order to give the people a
chanca to market their money crops
and thereby procure funds for pay
ing their taxes without the added
cost of advertising, the county com
missioners have postponed advertis
ing as long aSi possible, but it now
becomes neceasary for them to com
ply with the regulations and Novem
ber 5th has been set as the dead
line, after which the lists will be
made ready for next week’s Issues

Mr. and Mrs. John McLeod cele
brated their 60th weUding anniver
sary last Saturday al'ternoon, with

of their 29 grandchildren with them
at their home in the Eureka com
munity. In all there were some 100
guests, forty of immediate kinship.

Sons and daughters present for the
60th anniversary were Mr. and Mrs.
John D. Paul of Washington, this

D. Teabeaut, Fayetteville; Mr. and

John McLeod, who is 85 years of
age, is probably the only living
American whose father was born be
fore the American Revolution.
In an article in The Pilot of May
5, 1933, John A. Leland, then a mem
ber of the editorial staff, wrote:
John McLeod, Jr., lives in the EXi-
reka section of Moore county, and is
79 years of age. He has seen this
country pass through three major
conflicts, which is in itself rather
unusual. But the unique, the remark
able, the almost unbelievable distinc
tion which John McLeod, Jr. pos
sesses, is that his father was born
before the American Revolution.
John McLeod, Sr., was born in
Scotland about 1770. The "about” is
authentic, since it is on his tomb
stone. Soon after his birth he was
brought to this country by hig par
ents, who settled on what is still
known as the McLeod place, near
Aberdeen. The house which John, Sr.
built when he was a young man, con
structing it out of sturdy beams and
limber held tightly together by wood
en pegs instead of nails, is occupied
