THE LATE YW. U. BEATY.
Prominent in Business and
After an illness of only a few
weeks Mr. W. C. Beaty, a prom
inent merchant and business
man of Winnsboro, passed away
at his home in this place early
last Sunday morning. The fu
neral services were conducted
from Sion Presbyterian church
I on Monday at 11 o'clock and the
interment in the cemetery of
that church. The services were
conducted by his pastor, Rev.
Dr. Mayes, assisted by the other
ministers of the town. The body
was escorted to its last resting
place by the elders and deacons
of his church and representatives
of the local camp-of Confederate
veterans of which he was the
commander at the time of his
death. All business houses of
the town were closed during the
funeral hour as a mark of res
pect to the deceased.
Mr. Beaty was a native of this
county, having been born in the
Gladden's Grove section on De

to young manhood on his father's
plantation. In the second year
of the civil war he went to the

the country. He came to Winns
boro about 1870 and entered the
store of John H. Cathcart as ai
salesman. In 1871 his brother
moved to town and he and the
deceased entered the mercantile
business under the firm name of
Beaty Bros., this continued un
t1l the death of his brother in
1883, when he was joined in bus-!
iness by his nephew. Mr. W. A.
Beaty until 1885. After the dis
solution of this firm he continued
in business alone until a few
years ago when the present firm
of Beaty & Wylie was formed.
Mr. Beatv is survived by his
wife, three daughters, Mrs. Cal
vert Thompson, Misses Anna and
Elizabeth Beaty, and one son,
Dr. Jas. S. Beaty. One sister,
