G.M. Masters The Carter County Herald September 11, 1930  	"G. M. Masters, a well known citizen of the west end of Carter County has  
retired from work on account of bad health. His health has been bad for the  past two years. Mr. Masters was the youngest child of John and Amadilla Masters. 
They lived in Noble County Ohio. His father died when he was a small boy. There  were five children of this family, Samantha, Isaiah, Rachel, Thomas and 
George.  In 1867, his mother sold her home in Ohio and came to Kentucky and bought the  farm where Mr. Masters now lives on Flat Fork of Tygart in Carter 
County. On  August 29, 1930, a dinner was given at the home of Mr. Masters, in honor of  his 78th birthday anniversary. A large group of his friends and 
relatives were  present. Surrounding the dinner table were five daughters, one son, three  sons-in-law, nine grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one 
niece and her  daughter, a total of twenty-seven at the table. Mr. Masters is the father of  12 children, of which eleven are living. He has thirty-seven 
grandchildren and  twenty-one great grandchildren. All reported a fine time and plenty to eat. Mr.  Masters is one of our best citizens and we sincerely 
hope he will live for  many like occasions during the years to come."
