Buckingham County, 1908: Part I

In December 1908, the Appomattox and Buckingham Times reported on Buckingham County’s participation in the Jamestown Exhibition of 1907:

I am requested by Mr. J. H. Noble, who had charge of the Buckingham exhibits to be sent to Jamestown to say that the perishable exhibits were either sold or given away and that the mineral exhibits were distributed among real estate men in Virginia and elsewhere. Some samples were sent to one of the departments at Washington. A nice lot went to Commissioner Koiner, of Richmond. Mr. Clement, the editor and owner of this paper was given an order for a lot of mineral samples and this distribution seems to have been better than having been sent back here.

The following question was also raised:

[Correspondent] Quoit has already touched on, and stuck his probe into some of the questions asked, namely: Who paid the freight to Newport News—money spent on cutting up the courthouse and Jamestown exhibits.
