The Silent City 2012: Anna Dohoney Wethington

See also, main story by Lee Ann Jessie: The Silent City 2012 production was splendid success

Anna Dohoney Wethington . . . portrayed by Linda Lewis

Anna Dohoney Wethington was born in Gradyville in 1905. She was the daughter of Lillian and Stonewall Dohoney. She had 4 brothers (one of whom was also named Stonewall) and 2 sisters. She was a teacher in Adair County for most of her adult life. Her husband's name was Charles.

In 1947 (the time of the re-enactment) Anna bought the house at 307 Merchant Street (now Magnolia House B & B) at a very cheap price, and there were two stipulations in the deed: Anna''s parents could live there until their passing and Anna must maintain the property. After their passing it was to be Anna's. - Linda Lewis

The Silent City 2012: Laura Montgomery Feese

Laura Montgomery Feese ... Portrayed by Jennifer Smith

Hello, My name is Laura Montgomery Feese. I was born in Adair Co. on 04-29-1856. My Parents were William and Elizabeth Montgomery.

My Father was a farmer, and we lived in the White Oak Community. I had one brother Scott, and 5 sisters. I married James Conover Feese who was also from Adair Co. and born 03-07-1856.

His parents were Samuel and Malinda Hardin Feese.

He had 12 brothers and sisters. His Father built a grist mill on Russell Creek around the time of the war between the states. I think you call it the Civil War. The mill was later used for Hydroelectric power and was the first to provide electricity to the City of Columbia.

James and I had 4 lovely children. The oldest, a daughter Ora born 1879. The second. Samuel, was born 1880. He came to rest here in 1916. My third born, Lula, born 1883 died in 1905 at the age of 22. She died of Consumption. My baby was Guy, born 1885, He, his wife Carrie and baby girl Margorie are here also.

The baby died in 1911 at the age of 11 months, Carrie Sept. 1913 and Guy Dec. 1913 all of Tuberculosis.

I died 09-13-1905 of consumption I was 49. My dear James lived until 01-14-1930. He was 74. James and Guy are also buried here but have no headstones. Leave it to the men to lose their headstones. --Jennifer Smith

The Silent City 2012: Caleb H. Ricketts

See also, main story by Lee Ann Jessie: The Silent City 2012 production was splendid success

Caleb H. Ricketts...presented by Mike Watson

Written text prepared by Mike Watson, for presentation at the October 30, 2012, The Silent City:

Caleb H. Ricketts was known in Adair and surrounding counties as a classical educator, businessman, and land surveyor of considerable distinction. It was he who surveyed and marked the lines for the new county of Russell in 1825.

For many years, Professor Ricketts, as he was commonly known, taught subscription schools and was private tutor in this county for many of the young men who advance to prominence in later years. He was known as a classical scholar, one who taught not only the basic rudiments such as reading and writing, but also mathematics, Latin, logic and the sciences. His reputation increased to the point where he was often engaged to teach one or two children of a family, and would reside in the family, to be paid both room and board, and a salary based upon the curriculum and the number of pupils he taught.

Caleb H. Ricketts, born 15 March 1782, died 3 November 1849, buried in the Columbia Cemetery, was married in 1809 in Adair County to Anne T. "Nancy" Powell, a daughter of Major Robert Powell, Sr. Anne, generally called Nancy, as was the custom of the time, died "about" 1821, according to her grave marker in the Columbia City Cemetery. She and Caleb, who outlived her by nearly three decades, were buried in an old section of the cemetery, near where the old Powell family was interred, though no markers now remain for this venerable clan. Caleb and Anne left no issue.

His death was chronicled by a former pupil, James L. Johnston, of Adair County, a well known and wealthy businessman and gentleman farmer. "On the 30th of November one thousand eight hundred and forty nine our reverend and much esteemed friend Caleb H. Ricketts died at the house of Robert Lyon where he was keeping scholl (school) & his death was caused by violent cold terminating in Numonia (pneumonia). He went to school Monday and Tuesday, turning out school on Tuesday about two o'clock, being very much indisposed with cold sweats and chills passing through his sistem (sic), and was about 3 hours in reaching the house of Mr. Lyon, a distance of not more than a half mile, his attacks being so violent, and he lingered on until Saturday night about nine o'clock when his soul return[ed] to Him that gave it."

A note on Major Robert Powell--Robert Powell joined the Continental Army in 1776 and served until the close of the Revolution, attaining the rank of Major. He married in 1779 to Ann Wert in Alexandria, VA, and they were the parents of eleven children. Major Powell moved to KY and lived in Adair County at the time of his death and, therefore, is almost certainly buried in the Columbia Cemetery. Major Powell died on 14 or 15 May 1815. Ann Wert Powell, born 29 July 1762 at West Grove, near Alexandria, VA, died 5 January 1837 at Danville, then Mercer County, KY. Major Powell was awarded 4,000 acres of land in 1783 for his service in the Revolution. Dr. Nathan Gaither drafted a letter in 1833 to help prove Major Powell's service; he had been the Major\'s physician from 1809 until his death in 1815. - -Mike Watson

By Todd Davenport
Rarely do I take the time to slow down and put things into true perspective, but in times such as these it becomes a much needed re-focus.

Recently my family was invited to Kosair Charities Gifts and Grants night in Louisville, KY. It is an overwhelming display of care, concern, compassion and true unselfishness in regards to the needs of others. I had no idea what I was in store for or the way my outlook on the importance of things in my life could change so quickly.

Many of you know my wife Cayce and I were blessed 6 years ago with the birth of our son, Lashley Alton Davenport. He was born with bi-lateral microtia, undeveloped ears, and an overdeveloped sense of self worth mixed with a bit of attitude.
