FOUNDER OF THE UNION.
A Short Sketch of -the Life ef Newt
Gresham by His Daughter.
My father, Newt Gresham, the
founder of the Farmers' Union, was
born in 'auderdale CountY., Ala., Feb
ruary 20th, 1856. When he was six
years old, his parents moved tQ Kauf
man County, Texas, -where they soon
died, thus leaving him, at an early
age, to battle against the world and
its hardships. It was, undoubtedly,
during this time that the foundations
of his character were laid. The
strength developed in these early
struggles helped him in shaping and
leading America's greatest organiza
tion for farmers.
He was a member and a leader in
the Farmets' Alliance, and was never
reconciled, after the death of that or
der, until he succeeded in having an
other take Its place.
My father never had the opportuni
ty of attending a free public school.
All the education he received was the
result of his own labor and determin'a
tion. He wgs not a polished scholar,
but by dint of hard work he secured
a good practical education and a vast
amount of general Information.
In May, 1877, with seven dollars in
his pocket, he left his home at Cedar
Hill, in'Kau-fman County, and went.to
Terrell, Texas, where he boarded i
train for Fort Worth, on 'is way to
Granbury, Hood County, Tegs. There
was no railroad from Fort Worth to
Granbury, and not having money
enough to hire a private conveyance,
he walked the entire distance of for
ty miles. He then hired -himself- to
work on a farm at thirteen dollars a
month.
In January, 1881, he married Miss'
Ida Peters, whose home was in Gran
bury. He joined the Alliance in its
infancy, and was the first man in the
State to receive a commission to go
beyond State'borders to do organizing
work. He was the best postelraan re
garding farmers' organizations in'Tex
as. Leaving his young wife with her
parents, he went to the very commun
ity In Alabama in which he was born.
While there he organized a good local
