First White Child Was Born Within Its Walls RECALLS DAYS OF INDIANS All That Remains of Famous Home stead are Two Gaunt Chimneys. Home First Burned During Civil War. Decatur, July 22.—(Special.) — There stands near Moulton Heights, a suburb of Decatur, two tall, rough, moss covered, old-fashioned, massive stone chimneys which have interwoven about their past a story of historic Interest to all North Alabama. Years ago there stood between these chimneys an old-fashioned pioneer house within whose walls was born the first white chjld that was ever born in this county, which in those days was called Cotaeo county. This child was A. A. Burleson, the son of Jonathan Burleson, who came to Ala bama from Kentucky In the year 1818, one year before Alabama became a state of the Union. On the night A. A. Burleson was born there was an alarm of Indians and the mother and child were taken away to a place of safely. In those days the present city of Decatur was but a mere village, a trading post for the Indians as it were. There was a house between those chim neys as the commencement of the civil war, but it was burned during the war. After the war there was another house built for these chimneys and this ho;se, too, was burned a few years ago. All ■that remains now' to remind one of the spot where the first white child was horn in Morgan county are the tall stone chim neys. Practice Medicine in Decatur. A. A. Burleson became a physician and for many years practiced medicine in De catur and later on moved to Arkansas. The years of his early boyhood were try ing ones, for in those days this entire country was inhabited with Indians and there were many Indian uprisings against the whites. Jonathan Burleson ,the further of A. A. Burleson, was a prominent man in his day. He was a soldier in the war of 1812 and was in many engagements with the Indians during his life. He held a num ber of offices of trust in his time! among these being that of county commissioner ami justice of, the peace. He became a wealthy planter. How Horse Thieves Were Suppressed. The elder Burleson was a man of iron nerve and constitution. It is said that prior to the year 1820 a gang of horse thieves infested this part of the country and committed many depredations. A body of citizens, who desired to be rid of these thieves, met in convention in what is known as Salt Peter cave, a few miles south of Decatur. This convention passed resolutions which partook of the nature of laws. That convention has since been called ‘The First Legislature.' * Jonathan Burleson was chosen secretary of this convention and his brother Joe Burleson was chosen as its president. The holding of this convention and the pass ing of the resolutions had a good effect, for it broke up the gang of horse thieves for all times. The cave where the convention was held is today a popular resort for young people and picnics, who visit the place frequently during the long hot summer months little dreaming that within the chambers of this cave ‘‘the first legislature” was held many years ago.
