“In the Heart of the Pines: Camden During the Hotel Era, 1882-1941” opens on July 7, 2014

Frank's son, Inman, wrote that the living quarters at the mine "were a bit crude," so when his mother was expecting in 1882 his father bought Pine Flat from Mrs. William Shannon.

So we find it curious that two days after being soundly defeated by incumbent sheriff Jim Matthews, Thomley filed a $2-million libel/slander suit charging he'd been defamed by comments Matthews made during an investigation at Camden Military Academy ...
