First Presbyterian Church Accepts Hedge In Memory of Archie McIntosh, Nov. 24, 1919

From the front page of the Hickory Daily Record, Nov. 24, 1919

Presents Hedge for Archie McIntosh

Mr. Henry Chase of Huntsville, Ala., a former citizen of Hickory, has offered the First Presbyterian church an Amoor river privet hedge to go round the church property with the request that it be named for Archie McIntosh, a former elder in the church, and a citizen whom Hickory people loved. Dr. E.M. Craig presented the matter to the church Sunday morning and the sessions accepted the offer with gratefulness. The gift will be a memorial to a good citizen, a sterling churchman and a credit to the donor and church.
