[Editor’s note: This is the first of a three-part look back at some July events in Madison County expressed in the pages of the Meteor going back to 1929 (the earliest available editions of the newspaper). This first installment covers the modern era of the area.] Recently I thought maybe I was wasting time and ink, writing about events already documented. Therefore, I chose here to sniff old newspaper ink and delve into microfilm, in search of things that may bring fond memories. more

There have been Longbothams in Madison County for almost 200 years. It is surprising, therefore, that yielded only four tombstones here for that last name. Remember though, Findagrave only contains what humans have entered there, and some folks have not been recorded. I checked in Leon County, practically right next door, and found seven Longbothams.
