The following information is posted only as a guide to further research. The information its self, stated as facts, should be verified with primary and other sources before accepting it as true.

A Good Old Age
The Jonesboro Herald and Tribune of the 12th inst. has the following items:

There is a widow lady living near St. Clair, Hawkins county, Tenn., named Rachel Headerick, whose age links together the last past generations. She was born in Pittsylvania county, Virginia, Ocober 11th, 1779, and has therefore attained the remarkable longevity of ninety-five years. Her maiden name was Barnard and she married John Headerick, Dec. 24, 1801. Ten children blessed this union, eldest now Peggy Phillips and still living, was born in 1812 and is now seventy-two years old. Elijah H. Headerick was born July 17, 1804 and is still living. The youngest child was born Dec. 24, 1824. All the children are a sprightly group of hopeful scions, whose locks are whitening unto the final harvest of death. But it is of the central figure of this family circle we wish to speak of more particularly, Mrs. Headerick heself. She has sixty-two grand children, sixty-three great grand children, and six great-great grand children. She never drank a cup of coffee in her life, using milk and chocolate in its place. Her sight is unimpaired, and she reads a great deal. Her mind is active and vigorous, and she vividly recollects the scenes and events of her early childhood, and recounts them in the clearest and most entertaining style. She has been a member of the Baptist Church since 1805. The infirmities of age bear lightly upon this relic of the Revolutionary era, and she performs a considerable amount of manual labor, but her chief employment is spinning fine flax sewing thread. Mrs. Headerick is certainly the oldest as well as the most remarkable in our section of the country.
