Charles A. Giddens (My Great-Grandfather) Graduated from Jonesboro High School in 1888

A random newspaper search for "Giddens" in North Carolina led me to these clippings. You never know what you are going to find in old newspapers. 


Charles Giddens attended Jonesboro High School
April 11, 1888

Jonesboro High School was a Methodist school and operated under the auspices of the Fayetteville District of the North Carolina Methodisit Conference in the town of Jonesboro. The school was several hours from Charles Giddens' family home of Sampson County so it must be assumed that he boarded somewhere in town.
