DAR learns about Native American artifacts

The James Pittman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met at the Jackson County Courthouse on March 15 to learn about the discovery of many Native American artifacts in the county. Sidney and Carol Tanner donated a large collection of arrowheads that are displayed in the lobby of the courthouse. Sidney has been collecting arrowheads since he was 8 years old. The James Mathis family donated native pottery that is also displayed. A future park is planned in Jackson County that includes the Tanner property. Regent Charlotte Mealor and Betty Ann Mathis are shown with Sidney Tanner.
