possible dates for
the city’s founding - Dec. 6, 1819, when the
Alabama Legislature passed an act estab-
lishing a voting precinct here when the area
was thought to be a part of Alabama; May 13,
1820, when the U.S. Congress established a
post office in town; or Jan 3, 1821, when the
Mississippi Legislature chartered the city.
In one respect, the best argument is the
1819 date, not only because that’s the year
Columbus was first recognized by a legis-

Columbus officially became “Columbus.”
To date, there have been no plans for how
the city plans to celebrate its 200th birthday,
but I believe there is one thing we could do
that would not only acknowledge the city’s
history, but help shapes its future.
If we really want to honor our town’s histo-
ry, let’s start by going back to the town’s
original name.
Among the first white settlers in what is
now known as Columbus was a man named
Spirus Roach. Apparently, Mr. Roach had a
long pointed-nose, which led neighboring
Indians to refer to him as “Possum” and the
area in which he settled “Possum’s Town.”
For the next couple of years, the town was
known simply as Possum Town.
In 1819, notorious early settler and chron-
ic busy-body Silas McBee called a town
meeting, during which the white settlers
decided on a new name - Columbus.
Whatever bad ideas may have popped up
over the past 200 years or so, this was proba- THE ECONOMY

Memorial service

During Tuesday’s service, SPD
recognized two other area officers
— former Eupora Police Department
Officer Keith Crenshaw, who was
killed deploying spike strips during
a high-speed chase on Oct. 13, 2013;
and former French Camp Police
Department Chief Anthony Lucas,
who was fatally shot on Feb. 4, 2005,
while assisting the Ackerman Police
