Sergt. Ezra M. Muse, whose home
is in New Brookland and who was
born 5 miles below Winnsborb, was :
awarded a distinguished Servicd cross'
for extraordinary heroism in action
at Chateau-Thierry, France, May 31, d
to June4, 1918. While commanding a
machine gun in a building which had t
been struck by shells three times,
Sergt. Muse refused to leave this dan- C
gerous place, when offered the priv
lege of doing so by his superior offi
cers, because he had a better situa
tion to fire from than the point of
safety offered him.
He volunteered January, 1917, hav
ing seen service in the Mexican bor
der, and went overseas in March, 1918.p
In civilian life he was cashier and pay- 1
master of tye Richland Mills, in Co- b
lumbia 'and was held in high esteem
for the fidelity which he maintained
his trust with this corporation. His t
father, John S. Muse, was a Fairfield
man and for a long time a resident of:
Winnsboro and was appreciated for
his truthfulness, simplicity and cou
rage, a tripod on which any struct- d
ure could rest. Those of us who knew
the sire would expect just such act
ion on the part of the son. a
Sergt. Muse has been the victim of
shrapnel and is incapacitated for fur
ther duty as a soldier. The follow-!
