      Nat Straughn of English, Indiana, is 105 Years Old; One of the oldest men in the country is Nathaniel Straughn who lives in English, Indiana. Mr. Straughn is now nearly 105 years old having reached the century mark on May 8, 1892.

      "Uncle Nattie," as he is affectionately called by the residents of English, was born in Franklin County, Kentucky. He moved to Crawford County, Indiana, in 1816, and is still occupying, with his granddaughter's family, the house he entered at that time. He old gentleman boasts that he has never worn a piece of cloth that was not spun and worn by the hands of mother or wife; that he was never in a lawsuit, pro or con, and was never a witness in a suit at law, and that he did not find the need of eyeglasses until he was over 85. In his younger days, Nathaniel Straughn was a hunter, and his old flintlock musket occupies today a place of honor.
