staffs during National Library
Month. In recent years, as library
funding has declined, libraries
have struggled to maintain services
that are all the more critical in this era of technol-

for books and print information, but those roles
have evolved. Today, the library is not just a place
to pick up a book, but as a critical resource for a
part of the population that does not have internet
access in their homes. With so much of what we do
in every-day life dependent on internet access, the
importance of libraries has grown even as operating
funds diminish. Far from being disillusioned, our
library staffs seem to have risen to the challenge,
managing their limited resources in a way that pre-

MSU unveils statues of Clark, Palmeiro as part of weekend celebration

ill Clark and Rafael Palmeiro, also
known as “Thunder and Lightning,”
have been larger-than-life figures
among Mississippi State baseball fans since
their memorable playing days for the Bulldogs
in the 1980s.
On Friday, that became literally true during
a pre-game ceremony unveiling a pair of 15-foot

A crowd well more than 1,000 swarmed
around the Jordan Plaza at the main entrance of
Dudy Noble Field/Polk Dement Stadium, where
Clark and Palmeiro were honored with their

A discovery of old letters links families, preserves county history

‘If you suspect or know that you
have materials relating specifically
to Lowndes County, please give
us a call. ... We definitely would
rather take a look at it first
instead of having them thrown
out, lost to history forever.’
Columbus-Lowndes Public Library
archivist Mona Vance-Ali

ynne Rosamond carefully unfolds a letter from
another century. The handwriting is small and
close, the paper fragile with age. Not unex-
pected in correspondence penned 170 years ago. It
is one of several letters from the mid-1800s discov-
ered in family memorabilia at Franklin Square, the
circa 1835 home of Lilla Pratt Rosamond until her
passing in 2009. Her son, William “Bill” Rosamond
and his wife, Lynne, have lived there since 1991,
when Bill returned to his childhood home.
Until recently, the letters rested among stacks
of other papers and photographs stored safely in a
large cabinet. With the historic house — one of the
earliest brick homes in the city — now for sale, the
Rosamonds began sorting through the extensive
collection several months ago. Already, they have
donated more than 200 Pratt and Franklin family
letters and other papers from the early 1900s to the
Billups-Garth Archives at the Columbus-Lowndes
Public Library.
More recently, the older 19th-century letters
came to light.
“It was just a little tied-together packet of letters
from the 1800s, mostly correspondence to family
members from Georgia Priscilla Butt Young,” said
Lynne. “She was actually one of the original resi-
dents of Waverley. ... I’d always known that we were
related to the Youngs of Waverley but wasn’t sure
exactly what the kinship was.”
Georgia Young (1834-1911) was married to
Thomas Erskine Young (1831-1869) of Waverley
Plantation. Her father-in-law, George Hampton
Young, completed building Waverley mansion in
Clay County in the mid-1800s.
“She had seven children, one of which died very
young,” explained Lynne. “But her husband died at
age 38. Waverley was way out in the country back
then and Georgia had all these young children, so
she moved into town.”
Georgia would eventually move into Franklin
Square, on Third Avenue North, where one of her
daughters, Priscilla (Lilla) Young, had married
