The Burial of Mrs Stackhouse
Funeral Services Held at Little Rock Church and Interment in Cemetery.

Special to the State.

Dillon---Jan 14---The remains of Mrs Milton Stackhouse were brought from Clemson last night and interred in the cemetery at Little Rock, where practically all of the name have been buried for several generations. The funeral services were conducted by Rev Messrs. Leonard and Crout of the Little Rock and Dillon Methodist Churches.

Aside from a host of relatives, there was a large number of friends in attendance upon the sad occasion, thus paying their silent but touching tribute to the virtues of one who was known and loved by them for her true worth.

Mrs Stackhouse was originally Miss Mattie Stackhouse and was married first to Mr William Manning. To this union one child, a girl, was born, Miss Willie Manning, who is unmarried and living in Nashville.

Her second marriage was to Mr Milton Stackhouse, at present holding an important official connection with Clemson College, where the family has been living for several years. Aside from the husband, she leaves several children, as follows: Rev R E Stackhouse, for several years financial agent for Columbia Female College, for the past four years in charge of Marion station, and at last session of the South Carolina Conference appointed to the presiding eldership of the Rock Hill District; Dr Wade Stackhouse, the second son, lives in Dillon, one of the most prominent men in Upper Marion in social, financial, and agriculturing circles, now President of the County Cotton Association; the third child, a daughter, Mrs Alice Dunbar; the fourth a son, George M Stackhouse, now paymaster in the United States Navy. Fortunately he was within reach by wire and he, accompanied by his wife, came South on the Florida Special, reaching Dillon in time for the funeral. The youngest child is Augustus, associated with his father at Clemson.

The sympathies of their native county go out to this bereaved family and especially to the husband and father, the last surviving member of a large family. It will be recalled that less than a year ago his only living brother, the Hon T F Stackhouse, universally beloved "Uncle Truss" was buried.
