In Good Health at 101 Years of Age

Russell County's oldest citizen, uncle Silas Castle, is in very good health with the exception of being nearly blind.

Mr. Castle resides in the Western District of Russell county, and the family record shows that he was born January 30, 1819, making him almost 102 years of age.

During all these years Mr. Castle has had remarkably good health, and he recalls many interesting things that happened in the early days of his life.
