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.
