ter From Oolenoy
n the year 1863, in the city of
Charleston, S. C., Capt. Wm. M.
Jones, of the Peters' Creek sec
tion, purchased a small meat
chopper or "sausage grinder"
as it was commonly called., He
paid the sum of $6 for it. In
company with hin and actinz
as "reserves" in the Confederate
army Were Messrs. Reese Bowen
and Bennett Jones, his brother.
The purchase, the first of its
kind In - that section, created
much interest. It was not un
-common for Capt. Jones to kill
from 40 to 50 hogs yearly-but
the work of the little grinder
did not end with this. Into
dany, many homes it was bor
rowed-its owner was an accom
modating neighbor. After his
death some 12 years ago, this
useful article fell into the hands
of his daughter. Mrs. A. K.
