In the death of Mr. Geo. H.
McMaster, which occurred Friday
morning at 7.30 o'clock af ter a pro
tracted illness, Fairfield county
has lost a most public-spirited
ion. There was no enterp-sa
-alculated to promote the indus
brial interests of the county that
Mir. McMaster did not labor for
with an earnestness and enthusi
ism that won for him the admira
tion and respect even of the most
bitter opponents of the measures
ie advocated. Especially did he
abor unceasingly for getting an
)ther railroad for Winnsboro,
which he looke1 upon as the great
ieed of the town. His public
;piritedness was 3 ecognized by
Ill, and even those who often
;imes disagreed with him feel
;hat in his depth the county has
lustained a "reat loss.
Mr. McM'aster was born in
Winngboro April 28, 1828. He
Lttendd Mt. Zion under Dr. J. W.
Bludson, and afterwards entered
he South Carolina college, gradu
iting in 1850. After graduation
ie taught for several years, mak
ngan extended tour of the con
inent in the meanwhi!e. When
he war broke out he and his
nost estimable wife, who was
giss Mary Flenniken, were placed
n charge of the soldiers' home
t Richmond, and many were
;heir acts of kindness to needy
Donfederate soldiers in those try
ng days. Even now you may
:hance Ao meet one whom they
ef~iended in an hour of need,
who will say to you as one of
hem said to us one day, "There
iever lived a bigger-hearted man I
ban George McMaster. His (
eeds of kindness were many and
tot always known." After the
var he engaged in the mercantile
)usiness, continuing therein until
iis death. For a number of years
te served as president of the
innsboro National Bank. From
.880 to 1884 lie served his county
ost acceptably in the legislature.
or a number of years he was
ecretary and treasurer of Mt.
