VEEDERSBURG -- Charles Moffett (sic), oldest male resident of Veedersburg, will celebrate his 95th birthday anniversary Monday, Sept. 6. There will be no observance of the date due to the condition of health of Mr. and Mrs. Moffett. A native of Kentucky, he came to the Veedersburg community as a young man and was engaged in farming for a number of years. He later operated a grocery and meat market in Veedersburg and did carpenter work and painting. He continues to be active by mowing his lawn and caring for flowers and a vegetable garden. A year or so ago he painted his one-story house and through the years has always taken time to help a neighbor in need. He also walks to town to do grocery shopping. His marriage to Miss Dot Dearing was 67 years ago, in fact they will observe their 68th wedding anniversary in October this year. The couples only child is a daughter, Mrs. Eva Grubbs of Covington. They also have several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
