Mrs J C Carmichael

Special to the State.

Dillon---Aug 10---Mrs Bessie Carnes, daughter of the late John Carnes of Bishopville and wife of Dr Jno C Carmichael, died here on the evening of the 6th inst., after an illness of several days, aged about 28 years. She was a niece of Mrs Bob Lucien Bethea, formerly of Bishopville, now of Dillon, and sister of Mrs Howard Alford of this place.

On the 13th of last January she was married to Mr Jno C Carmichael and but a few weeks before her death this young couple had established a home of their own with every earthly assurance of their share of the usual allotment of the joy and happiness that is always the dream of the young on life's threshhold.

A Sad Death

Mrs. Jno. C. Carmichael died at her residence here last Sunday morning after a brief illness. She was a bride of only about six months and her untimely death is peculiarly sad. Mrs. Carmichael was a Miss Carnes, of Bishopville, being a niece of Mrs. R. L. Bethea, and a sister of Mrs. Howard Alford, both of Dillon.

She had spent several years of her life with relatives and friends in and near Dillon and was well-known throughout this section.

Her body was laid to rest in the Carmichael burying ground near here Sunday afternoon, a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends following the remains to the grave. The services were conducted by her pastor Rev. J. D. Crout.
