      Taken from diary of Charles M. Terry, Tippah County genweb site:
      7/4 Cloudy pleasant A.M. Very hot P.M. I went to see Mr. Webb buried which was down by the Masons at Salem with some tears “Deth rides on every passing breeze and lerks in every opning flower”. After which we (11 good men of the gents) over to Gov. Mathews water gin to the celebration of the day which our forefathers founded our liberty (1776). We had a show to do as I would call it. Not many there in the first place. We had two speeches on Centrile America. A Mr. Turnbull one of them who said he had been to the place. We then had dinner which was a very fine one but small. After dinner they got up a dance but did’nt contintue long. The croud broke up at about 3oc in the evening. I came by Salem a home.
