Gurley Lions Club serving the Gurley community since 1948
by Charles S. Johnson, Jr.
I have a few items of interest I would like to share:
1. Civil war photo of J.M. Mason (different from the one in From Our Past Historical Series From Our Past XXIV)
2. Small oval portrait of J.M. Mason
3. Small oval portrait of his wife, E.D. Mason
4. Booklet, "An account of some of the activities of Confederate forces in and around Huntsville, Alabama," from the papers of Rev. J.M. Mason.
This material was collected by Ellen O. Mason and apparently published by J.M.Mason, MD, of Birmingham.
5. Assorted snapshots of family.
6. J.M. Mason's copy of "Life of General Nathan Bedford Forest," by J.W. Wyeth - with about 15 margin notes added by JMM.
