Shiloh Community, Southeast Carroll County, Tennessee

 

     The below article was taken from the Tennessee Republican, Huntingdon, Carroll County, Tennessee, Friday, August 2, 1889, Vol. 20, No. 17



Twentieth-Fifth District

 

     This district is in the southeast corner of Carroll County and is known as “Texas” and “God’s Country.” Shiloh church, the only one in it, has a large membership, REV. GEORGE HOLLOWELL is the pastor and nine-tenths of the citizens belong, besides a lot of members from Benton, Decatur, and Henderson Counties.

     We have three free schools and every child from six years up is attending. We can boast of some things that no other district in the state can: We nearly all belong to the Baptist Church, all vote the republican ticket and are all white men… there is not a child in the district ten years old but what can read and write.

     We have the high, healthy land to live on in one of the healthiest parts of the county.

     We may have a candidate next summer… I believe that SAM BROWN will have a walkover up here because he is an old veteran and our folks have always been partial to that class of men. If BEN BUTLER should be a candidate, he will have the lead up here.

Signed J. J.
