          Ninety years old and more active than many persons years younger, is the record of  Mrs. Docia McDuffle,  who resides north of Shelbyville on the Michigan road. Mrs. McDuffle's birthday was observed by a gathering of many of her friends.  Mrs. McDuffle possesses remarkable activity for her age.  Her eyesight is good and her memory exceptional.  She conducts her household work each day without fail and shows great interest in public affairs.  Her one hobby is her vegetable garden and although her children protest against her spading and hoeing the patch because of possible over-exertion, she merely laughs and says she is too young to sit around.  She is the mother of  Mrs. Emma L. Hendricks,  Mrs. Charles H. Woodard  and  Andrew B. McDuffle.
