The Sparta Times and Planter says:  There is an apple tree on the farm of John M. Matthews, near Danielsville, in Madison county remarkable for its age and size.  It measures ten feet and two inches in circumference around the body four feet from the ground; it was planted by Mr. James Ware, a soldier of the war of 1776.  The tree is now eighty years of age, and is bearing a full crop of fruit.
