Title

October 3 1919 | Former Courthouse Janitor has Sea Chest Brought Over on the Mayflower

Description

Talk about your ancestors, heirlooms and treasured relics, there is one man in Woodstock who owns a sea chest which his great-great-grandfather brought over in the Mayflower and the chest is now in his possession, sound and strong as ever.

This man is J. C. Cadwell, former janitor at the Courthouse. Mr. Cadwell is bashful in speaking of this heirloom which would be treasured by any lover of relics, but as a reporter of The Woodstock American called at the Courthouse on Monday, Mr. Cadwell and Deputy Sherriff Charles Wandrack were having a talk on reminiscences, both having been in the county's service eight years, and the interesting fact that a Mayflower sea chest was one of the relics treasured in this city was brought to light in this conversation.
