What a wonderful treat, for someone to make a connection with an old news article I've posted in "The Olden Times!"I couldn't be more pleased!
I'm also glad to see that the poor fellow was NOT named "Nibbleton."I must confess that I'd wondered if he hadn't shot John over long-standing bad feelings that John had gotten the better name. I suspect I'd have wanted to shoot someone if I'd been named "Nibbleton."
I'm ringing in the New Year by checking my email after an out-of-town family hunting trip (hunting deer, not ancestors), and I'm about to give up & turn in for the evening, but I will email you soon.
Again, thank you for checking in with us all about Middleton WEDGEWORTH (who should've sued the paper for calling him "Nibbleton").
