Newspaper The Berea Citizen Berea, Kentucky October 24, 1901, page 8 Breathitt County. Canoe. Sore eyes are general in this part of the county. There is great confusion at present in this county over the coming election. The Democrats of the county have a regular ticket in the field, and there is also a fusion ticket which is endorsed by the Republicans. Great excitement prevails in the county, and trouble is feared. Your correspondent had the pleasure a few days ago of visiting Uncle Nathan Arrowood, one of the pioneer preachers of Breathitt County. He is 80 years old, and has been a minister of the Gospel for about 54 years. The aged brother is in comparative good health, and has a good mind. He says he is patiently waiting for his departure.
