Confederacy Passes Away

Sellers, June 1. - Mr. Evans T. McClellan, the intendant of the town, died Tuesday afternoon and was buried yesterday afternoon at Union church cemetery by the side of his wife, who had predeceased him sixteen years. The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. B. J. Guess of the Methodist church, of which Mr. McClellan had become a member for many years.

Mr. McClellan was just past his 66th birthday having been born April 19, 1835. At the beginning of the war he volunteered in Company 1, 21st South Carolina Volunteers, of which the late Ex-Senator Col. R. G. Heyward was captain and gave four years of his youth to the service of the Confederacy.

He leaves four daughters, Mrs. Julian Hubbard, Mrs. A. M. Wade, Miss Mattie and Miss Lula McClellan.

He had been suffering with heart trouble for quite a while and confined to his bed. Memorial Day recently he managed to be present, realizing fully that would be the last opportunity he would ever have of meeting his old comrades. His death was sudden but not wholly unexpected. He enjoyed to the close of his life the respect and esteem of numerous friends and a large family connection.
