-I had the pleasure
not long since of dining with one of our oldest citizens, Mr. L.L. MAINOUS
and wife of this county. Surely providence has blessed them and their
family with both health and plenty. Through a long and eventful life
Mr. MAINOUS, though naturally not being a stout and hearty man till after
45 years of age, has by industry and good management amassed a good competency.
He has been able to give each of his family (which is very large) a start
in the world, either in money or land. He followed the plan of giving
to each child a good horse, saddle, and bridle, and then followed the substantial
gift of a farm or its equivalent in money or stock. But the remarkable
part is the size of his family and the good health that has attended them.
Mr. L.L. MAINOUS was born in Grayson county, Va., in 1808, removed to Lee
county, Va., in 1831, and married Rebecca FLANERY in 1833. They lived
in Virginia 25 years and moved to Owsley county, Ky., to the farm they
now occupy, in ___ nearly or about 29 years ago. He is 79 years of
age and she is 69 having lived together 53 years. He is second cousin
to Maj. A.B. HAMPTON of this place, and Mrs. MAINOUS bears the same relationship
to the Major's wife. They have the following offspring: Abraham
R. has 3 children and 1 granchild; Walter P. (dead) 8 children;
John T. 6; Daniel C. 5; Elbert S. 3; Hampton 2;
Mrs. Cynthia MINTER 11 and 7 grandchildren; Mrs. Martha SCOTT 6 and
4 grandchildren; Mrs. Amanda SPIVEY 7 and 5 grandchildren;
Mrs. Matilda REYNOLDS 8; Mrs. Mary TREADWAY 9; Mrs. Henry HYDEN
6; making in all 11 children, 74 grandchildren, making in all 104
of his own family.

--In the death of his son Price, Capt. Calloway COPE looses the seventh from his family. A wife and six children lie slumbering in the quiet valley where they lived and died. Twenty-five years ago his prophesied that he would not lived three years, but he survives while his family have fallen like autumn leaves. He and his family have the tender sympathy of a large circle of friends in this their deep affliction.
