      This article written by Henry Pyatt appeared in the Apr 2, 1873 edition of "The Hillsboro Democrat" newspaper:

      "James Card, one of our first settlers of Montgomery county, still living, informs me that he was 86 years old the 14th day of December last. He was born in Wake County, North Carolina, was married in the same state to Miss Cynthia Brit in the 21st year of his age, and in the same year immigrated to Warren County, Kentucky. In 1818 he emigrated from Kentucky to this county [Montgomery], settled and improved a farm on the East Fork of the Shoal Creek..... Mr. Card lost his first wife, then moved on the John Beck farm in the year 1824. [From here he bought and lived on several more farms]

      "When he first came to the county, his second wife was Sarah Davis, a daughter of George Davis, an early settler. This third wife was also Sarah Davis, daughter of Israel Davis, an early settler, his second and third wives having been cousins. He was the father of twenty-four children, five by his first wife, seven by his second and twelve by his third wife... He and his first wife lived together happily for thirteen years, his second wife thirteen years, and he has been living with his third wife now for 38 years.

      "Mr. Card says that John Beck's mill was built in the year 1824, which has been spoken of as the first mill in the county."
