Rev. Ned Granberry Baggett was born in 1848 and lived to the ripe old age of 97. He died 15 November 1945. He married Lucretia McCormick, who deceased him. She was born 20 October 1858 and died 16 December 1944. Both are buried in Weaver Cemetery, Brewton, Alabama.
Ned Granberry Baggett's father was Nicholas Granberry Baggett and his mother was Elizabeth Emmons, early settlers of Conecuh County, Alabama.
At age 93 an article was written in the Escambia paper as follows: "N. G. Baggett of Brewton, Alabama would easily be the winner in any contest on age and activity. He is 93 and an active member of the Conecuh County National Farm Loan Association's Board of Directors. He attended a recent joint meeting of the Association boards in Conecuh County and made a speech. He took out his first loan 20 years ago and has served as a director of his local association for six years. He has attended most of the board meetings and nearly all of the annual meetings in that time.
"Baggett, as a young man, married and starting out in life working for a large South Alabama lumber company which seemingly had more land than money. The company tried to pay Mr. Baggett 75 cents per day for cutting logs but in lieu of a cash wage of 75 cents per day, offered to deed an acre of land for each day's work in the woods. Baggett, after consultation with his wife, took the land instead of cash and worked out 540 acres of land on that basis. Asked how he managed to get by without money. Baggett replied: 'After I worked in the woods all day, I came home at night and split rails by lantern light at 50 cents per hundred rails to get money for coffee, sugar, and the cloth we needed to make our clothing. My wife took care of everything else; the old cow, the chickens, and the garden. It takes grit and grind to be a farmer.'"
Another article in Escambia's leading papaer wrote in October of 1939, which heads the picture on reverse page: "CELEBRATES 90TH BIRTHDAY." Quote: "The photo below was taken here on Monday of last week when 'Uncle Ned,' as he is affectionately known by countless friends, brought Mrs. Baggett to town to help him celebrate his 90th birthday.
"The beloved couple observed their 60th wedding anniversary in June of this year. Throughout their long married life they have made their home nine miles north of Brewton at Appleton. They had nine children, seven of whom are living.
"Mr Baggett was born two miles from Brewton at what was known as 'Green Branch' on 9 October 1819 and has resided near this city continuously all of his life. He states that he took his first job when he was 10 years old and has been working ever since. For more that 50 years he has engaged in farming, but has devoted much of his time to preaching, being an ordained minister of the Baptist Church, and he has served many churches in this and adjoining counties. He has held the office of Tiler in the Masonic Lodge at Brewton for nearly a half-century; he is always the first to arrive and the last to leave on the nights that the lodge convenes, and there is no record of his ever having missed a meeting.
In spite of the fact that he is nearing the century mark, 'Uncle Ned" is as healthy and active as a man half his age. He can still plow, gather hay, and perform other tasks about his farm; and to observe him on the streets of Brewton during his frequent visits to the city, one would conclude that he has at least another half-century of activity ahead of hem.
"'My Gal,' Uncle Ned explained in referring to his wife, 'won't come to town but about once every ten years and I had a hard time persuading her to make this trip with me. I can't keep her here long at a time for she won't stay away from her cows and chickens."
