ompletion of the patriotic work
o well begun in 1884, when a few t:
ad'es of Winnsboro banded I

f members at that time was
Lbout sixty, the number at no
ime having increased much above i
ne hundred, and the membership a
t this time being no larger than b

ource of income all the w'hile r
as been the yearly dues of the q
embers, 25 cents for married 1,
