Special to the State November 25, 1925
Clio, Nov. 25 - Saturday, November 21, the spirit of Samuel W. Driggers
took its flight. Mr. Driggers had not been well for several months but was
confined to his bed for just one week. He was the son of Samuel and Penina
Driggers, and had lived near Clio all of his life.

his friends by all who knew him. He will be sorely missed in the community.

Fla., Ernest Driggers of Clio, Mrs. Colin Crowley and Miss Nancy Driggers
of Clio, and Mrs. James Crowley of Bennettsville; also two sisters, Mrs. J.

brothers, H.H. and L.E. Driggers of Clio,

funeral serves were conducted by his pastor, the Rev. W. A. Beckam, assisted
by the Rev. J. F. Rorex of the Baptist Church and the Rev. W. H. Hamilton
of the Presbyterian Church. The floral tributes were many and beautiful,
symbols of the true worth and esteem in which he was held.
