March 27, 1861 Issue of the WEEKLY STANDARD (Raleigh, North Carolina)

The Fayetteville Observer adds to our list the names of the following gentlemen, members of the Convention 
of 1835, as still living. We thought it more than probable that our list was not entirely correct. The 
Observer says:
	"In addition to the above we add, as still living, Joseph White of Anson, Frederick J. Hill and Wm. R. Hall 
of Brunswick, Henry W. Harrington of Richmond, John W. Powell of Robeson, Gen. Alexander Gray of Randolph, 
John B. Martin of Montgomery. Thirty-seven out of one hundred sixteen is a large proportion to be living at 
the end of 26 years-the members being generally elderly men at that time."
