They Promote Planting To Prosper, 1938

We recently attended the estate of Lillian Ezzell Dobson Dunavant in Memphis.  Lillian is a great-grandchild of John Williamson Moran making her and Kent 2nd cousins. We purchased several items related to the shared family history including two boxes of newspaper clippings, letters and other ephemera.

The first packet of clippings just happened to include articles that mention Uncle Brud, aka Charles H. Moran.  I thought that was a great place to begin scanning and sharing the information from the Dunavant estate.


"Plans for bigger and better participation in the 1938 Plant To Prosper contest by Weakley County farmers were outlined at Dresden, Tenn., this week by the county committee; Members are (left to right) Charles H. Moran, banker; Claude H. Hilliard and Reuben E. Ellis, county agent."
