Events of the Day - 6 April 1910

From the Paducah Sun:

Engagement of Mr. Jefferson Hayes Davis, grandson of the late President Davis, of the Southern Confederacy, and Miss Doree DeWitt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theo DeWitt, recently of New York, announced at a tea party at the DeWitt residence in Broadmoor, Colorado. No marriage date set yet. Young Davis is a Columbia College student. He is a son of Mr. James Addison Hayes and wife, who was a daughter of President Davis. His name was changed by an act of the legislature on his grandfather’s death in order to perpetuate the name.

Tornado in Central City, Kentucky caused loss of $5000 to houses, barns and outhouses, but no one injured.

Cold snap called “Dogwood Winter.”  “Blackberry Winter" due last of April.
