Story of a Strange Man

1 min read

“[…] When they brought him back he could not speak but very few words of English but after a few years they sent him to school and he learned very fast and he became a useful and intelligent man. He married a repectable lady and had a large, and repected family. He was elected to the General Assembly of Virginia from Randolph County and served two years; was also sheriff of Randolph one term. He moved from Randolph to some of the western counties of the state (Braxton). It is strange that a man can have his character so changed in a short ime, from that of an untutored savage to that of an intelligent and trustworthy man.”
