Paulding, Jaspar County, Mississippi, 1891

Paulding, the county seat of Jasper County, has a population of two hundred and thirty. It is situated a little east of the center of the county and has no railway communication. It has a good country trade, however, and is the center of a considerable business.

It was in Jasper County that Dr. J. N. Waddell, who afterward became chancellor of the University of Mississippi and later of the Southwestern University at Clarksville, Tenn., began his career as a teacher. The Clarion Ledger was first edited here under the name of the Eastern Clarion.

Garlandsville, Heidelburg, Lake Como and Vosburg are other towns in this county.
