From: Clarksville Leaf Chronicle (


June 25,1928-- Recovery recently of a valuable gold watch he lost twelve years ago while picking blackberries proved gratifying to Baxter Batson, young farmer of this community, who found the watch while plowing over the spot where the brier patch formerly thrived. To Batson's surprise the watch fell out of a clod of dirt. The timepiece, which was presented to him by the First National Bank at Clarksville when he was employed by that institution, is highly prized by Batson. The watch is in good condition with all its parts intact.
