A Look Into the Past

Arcadia Albritton

Albert DeVane wrote in "Preacher Named Arcadia For Little Girl Who Baked A Birthday Cake For Him," The Tampa Tribune, May 24, 1959:

James Henry, who was very aggressive, was nicknamed "Boss" by his brothers, a name he was known throughout his lifetime...
In the Summer of 1883, he decided to move his [saw] mill to a new site in the southern part of Manatee County. Disassembling the mill and loading on wagons and carts drawn by many yoke of oxen, the slow move began. 
The first night was spent at the Thomas H. Albritton place on Horse Creek, first called Castaglia [Castalia], later Lilly.

After the men had left the kitchen for the front porch, Mrs. Albritton's daughter, said, "Mama, let's bake the preacher a birthday cake for tomorrow." Her mother agreed and they baked it that night and gave it to him the next morning, wishing him many more happy birthdays.
He was very appreciative saying, "This is awful nice of you ladies to remember me with a birthday cake. I'll tell you what I'll do. When I get to sawing lumber at the new site, a new town is sure to start up. I'll just name it Arcadia in honor of Arcadia Albritton. I think it's a pretty name anyway."
She was the seventh child of Thomas H. Albritton and Fannie (Waldron) Albritton. She became the wife of William W. Coker, son of Wesley. (Boss) Hendry, who had previously set up his sawmill and began sawing lumber, building himself a home and a store, also mill quarters...
