From the "Local and Personal" column in The Dispatch on this day in 1953:
Mrs. J. M. Hart, formerly of Lexington, now of Winston-Salem, came here yesterday and accompanied Mrs. Wade Phillips to Albemarle, where they visited relatives of Mrs. Phillips and other friends. They went especially to visit Mrs. Phillips' sister, Mrs. Eli Kendrick, who is leaving tonight for New York. She will sail Thursday on the Queen Mary for a three months' tour of European countries and will then visit her son, Lt. Col. James M. Kendrick and family, who is stationed in Germany. She will return in February.
