farming in a modest way, and by thrift and industry accumulated a large estate.

by Rev Frank Lyon, pastor of Dillon Baptist Church, and in the presence of a
large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends, the body was laid to rest
in the church cemetery.

Mrs Sallie Jackson, Mrs Bessie Blackman, all of Dillon County, Phillip Cook, Jr
and Mrs Sara Carlis (should be Carter) of Latta.
