Regarding Thomas Jefferson Stump. [From the May 21, 1926 issue of the Ashland City Times] The Lively Lad Weed Cutter recently invented by T.J. Stump is now on the market and bids fair to become one of the fastest selling implements of the day. The “Lively Lad” is made by Mr. Stump in his own factory, that has been recently built especially for the purpose of manufacturing these useful little implements. The present capacity of the plant is about 100 cutters per day. The retail price is $1.75 sold under a strict guarantee. Cheatham County Historical and Genealogical
