"Uncle Add ", as he was fondly called by the children of most of the families in Crockett.  At one time or another he had done favors, worked for, or just became acquainted in the 102 years that he lived.  I (Billie Nichols Bennett) talked with him a lot when he came to help Mable Hail with yard work and enjoyed hearing him tell of when he was a child growing up and how his father had been a slave before the Civil War.
