Death of Capt. Sinclair

On Tuesday morning Aug. 10, 1909 at 6 o'clock the spirit of A. C. Sinclair took its flight to the God who gave it. Mr. Sinclair's parents were from Scotland and came to this country in 1829. He was married just after the war to a daughter of Alexander Blue, Mary Ann by name, to whom were born five children. One son, A. G. Sinclair, is in business at Bennettsville, A. C. Sinclair is in Rowland, N. C., merchandising, one daughter married D. M. Watson, of Rowland, and D. C. Sinclair and Miss Mary E. Sinclair reside on the farm at Sinclair's x roads.

Mr. Sinclair was until about 10 years ago a member of the Presbyterian Church but he took an active part in helping to build Oakland M. E. church and he then connected himself with that church of which he was a consistent member when he died. On July 12th, 1902 he married the second time, Miss H. J. Hargrove who survives him. She is a daughter of the late Stephen Hargrove Esqr., who was well and favorably known in is community. No issue from this marriage.

Capt. Sinclair served in the Confederate war and was promoted from ranks December 1862. Was wounded at Petersburg in 1864 and was the surviving commander of Fairlee's old company of Orrs rifles. He spent his life in rural pursuits and always took active interest in religious as well as secular matters that had a tendency to build up his community. He died at the age of 73 years beloved and respected by all who know him.
