1 “Wiley Post and Will Rogers, two famed Oklahomans who were killed recently in a tragic airplane crash in Alaska were honored in a special way in Perry this week when a baby boy, born to Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Folger was named in honor to the famous flier and humorist.
Wiley Rogers was the name given the eight and a half pound baby boy born to Mr. and Mrs. Folger here Wednesday, August 28.
The Perry youngster is perhaps the first in the state to be named in honor to the two great men since their untimely death.” 
Folger, Wiley Rogers (I1670)

3 “Mrs. T. R. Sorrells died at her home
six miles north of Chelsea Tuesday morn-
ing April 23, 1901, of heart failure. She
was about 52 years of age. That morn-
ing their home caught fire and she feared
that it would be entirely consumed, and
she began removing the furniture as
rapidly as possible. Some of the child-
ren succeeded in extinguishing the flames
and when they had accomplished this
they found Mrs. Sorrels laying in the
yard. She was immediately removed to
the house and Dr. Pifer was summoned
at once, but before he arrived she
was beyond medical assistance. Her
sudden death is attributed to her extreme
excitement and fright, causing heart fail-
ure. It is sad indeed to be parted so sud-
denly from one who is so dear, and their
many friends deeply sympathize with
the family in this their irreparable loss.
The remains were laid to rest in the
Chelsea Cemetery Wednesday afternoon,
the burial ceremonies being conducted
by Rev. R. C. Parks.”

28 Butler County, Alabama, had a major loss of records in an 1853 courthouse fire. No marriage record found in Butler or Pike Counties, Alabama.[1] Estate file of Mary Holland lists her heirs, including “Elizabeth Cook, wife of James C. Cook.”[2] Elizabeth is likely the female 15–19 in her father, James's, household in 1840. James & Elizabeth’s first child, Sarah, was born in April 1842. Based on those dates, they were likely married between 2 June 1840 and sometime in July 1841.
