The Dillon Herald, Dillon, South Carolina
October 19, 1905, Vol. 10, No. 43
This good Christian, woman passed away at her residence in
Dillon last Friday morning at an early hour. She had been in declining health
for many months, and while her taking away was not a surprise to those who knew
of her condition, still it was a great shock. She spent several months at a
hospital in Richmond seeking health and then went to the home of her son,
Mr. H. Hoyt Carmichael in Charlotte, but the malady with which she had been
seized was incurable, and about three weeks before her death she returned home
and quietly and peacefully awaited the final summons.
Mrs. Carmichael was the widow of the late D. C. Carmichael, who was
drowned in Charleston harbor some months ago by the capsizing of a small sail
boat. She was 59 years old, and is survived by four children, H. Hoyt
Carmichael, of Charlotte; D. C. Carmichael, of Dillon; Mrs. S. M. Brasswell, of
Fork, and a small daughter.
She was laid to rest beside the grave of her husband at the McDuffie burying
ground Saturday morning.
