I stumbled upon an obit for Senator Luke Pryor of Limestone County, AL. Most of published obits contain a lot of the same data we see in every online family tree. This obit was a bit different. It was published March 30, 1901 in the Stevens Point Daily Journal, Stevens Point, WI.
It’s actually more of a little story than an obit full of data points. It tells the tale of the wealthy Mrs. Gable inviting Luke Pryor to a dance through his widowed mother. In the story it refers to Luke as Mrs. Pryor’s “read-headed boy.” This may be of interest to Pryor researchers following the trail of red-heads in their Pryor line.
Another part of the story was that Luke Pryor was an accomplished fiddle player. Who knew.
Just passing it along for those who are interested.
