25 Years Ago

* Nina Bazouzi, a citizen from the occupied part of Jordan, will speak to the Carroll County branch of the American Association of University Women. Following the Six-Day War in the Middle East, she left for the United States to participate in the volunteer program of the Church of the Brethren. Since the fall of 1968, she has been teaching at Hampstead Elementary. -- Community Reporter, Feb. 27, 1970.

50 Years Ago

* Believed to be Carroll County's oldest native-born resident, Frederick Dutton, colored, died at his home near Eldersburg Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock of the infirmities of age. The Carroll County medical examiner returned a verdict that death was due to arteriosclerosis and the man's age was fixed approximately at 102 years. Known from existing records to have been somewhere between 101 and 104 years of age, the aged man was the son of slaves Frederick and Nancy Dutton. He is survived by his widow, also named Nancy Dutton, and who herself is aged 96 years. -- Democratic Advocate, Feb. 23, 1945.

100 Years Ago

* The general merchandise store of Messrs. Genetz & Leppen at Mount Airy was entered by burglars on Friday night of last week, and goods valued at $50 carried away. On Wednesday afternoon, Alex. Elliott, deputy sheriff of Berkeley County, W.Va., and a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad detective, and Daniel Sloan, also of the railroad detective force, came to this city from Martinsburg, Va., with two men in custody who are charged with the robbery in question. One of them gives the name of Himan Morris, aged 31, and his home as Baltimore. The other is but 18 years old. He says his name is Ralph Jones, and he hails from Dayton, Ohio. He protests his innocence. -- American Sentinel, Feb. 23, 1895.
