Maryville Times – 26 Dec 1896

    

W.C. Chumlea, who was appointed Clerk & Master of the Chancery court the first of the week, was born in Knox County in 1845.  He came to this county, July 1875.  For three years after he came to Blount he clerked in the store of H.L. Bradley, which stood where A.K. Harpers now stands.  In August 1878 he was elected Clerk of the Circuit Court and he served the people so faithfully and well during his first term that he was elected to this since the second and third time,  serving in all twelve years.  During four years of the time that he was Circuit Court Clerk he served as Justice of the Peace, and the last three years he served as Deputy Clerk and Master.   Oct. 21, 1890, he was appointed Clerk and Master by Judge Gibson and has served six years in this office and his reappointment for another six years is certainly a high compliment to his efficiency.   If Mr. Chumlea lives to serve out his present term he will have served Blount County in official capacity a total of twenty-four years and he will be 57 years old.   This is certainly a long and honorable record, a record of which any might feel proud.

Serious Accident

Maryville Times
July 3, 1913

A serious and what might have proved to be a fatal acciden occurred on the Niles Ferry Road about two miles west of town on Friday night of last week.  Our local Furniture Dealer and Undertaker Ed F. Harper was out driving with his wife and little son, where they were run into by a boggy driven by a boy, who must have been asleep, as Mr. Harper pulled his vehicle clear out of the road.  His buggy was overturned and his wife, boy and himself were dumped into the road, the horse then proceeded to demolish the buggy, dragging Mr. and Mrs. Harper some distance, dislocating his shoulder and breaking Mrs. Harper’s arm.  The little boy was not injured.  It was a very narrow escape from death.  People should be more careful when driving along the public highway.
