Death ci Mr. James M. Ycung
One by one the land marks, thc
golden links that connect the long
ago with the present, are passing
saway. The death cf James Mayson
-Youngblood at his home in Augusta
Monday, April 12 ,rtw*yes from the
active scenes cf life one who, though
claimed by Augusta, rightly belongs
to Edgefield. It was here he spent
his early life and it was his ancestry
who had a pari in making the history
of this county. Mr. Youngblood not
only bore an honored name but he
bore it honorably. He was a cultured
gentleman of thc cid school, possess
ing heart culture and well as intel
lectual and social culture. God spar
ed him to his loved ones and to his
generation nearly four score years,
lacking only four months of reach
ing the 80th mile-post.
Mr. Youngblood made a gallant
record as a Confedeate soldier, be
ing a participant in the earliest bat
tles and fought through the entire
struggle, having lost an arm in bat
tle. Since thc war he has been loyal
to the principles of the Confederacy
and has always been actively identi
fied with the veterans' organizations.
About 28 years ago Mr. Young
blood located in Augusta and for the
past 20 years was charged with the
keeping of the Center Street bridge
cross thc Savannah, where he ser
ved with increasing faithfulness.
Mr. Youngblood was a devout
member of the First Baptist church
of Augusta and although modest and
unobtrusive, a characteristic of those
who bore the name, his influence was
felt for' good far and wide. He pos
sessed a marked degree of talent as
a vocalist and he was frequently in
vited to sing in the churches and in
the evangelistic services. It was his
. custom for a number of yeavs to visit
the prison, singing and otherwise
.ministering to the inmates.
Mr. Youngblood is survived by
his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Anne Young
blood, five children, Mrs. B. L. Eas
terling, Barnwell; Mrs. J. M. Kill
ingsworth, Dunbarton; Miss Mamie
Youngblood, Augusta; Mrs. C. H.
Bruce, Macon, and J. R. Y'oungblood,
Augusta, and two sisters, Mrs. Nan
nie Griffin and Miss Tillie Young
blood, of Edgefield and one brother,
Mr. Frank Youngblood of Ellenton.
The funeral services were con
ducted Tuesday afternoon from the
Baptist church in Augusta, Rev. M.
E. Grace officiated, being assisted by
Dr. Joseph P.. Sevier of the Presby
terian church. Dr. Sevier was a de
voted friend of Mr. Youngblood and
whenever he held revival services in
his church, the Presbyterian church,
he always invited him to participate
in the singing, which serves to show
?hat this venerable and saintly man
was beloved by all classes and all

Death of Mrs. John McGee.
With feelings of intense sadness
and regret we announce the death of
a woman of whom we were deeply
attached from her cradle to her
grave. We allude to Mrs. John Mc
Gee, of Cleora, S. C., who died on
April 1, 1920. She was confined to
her bed about five weeks and through
each clay and the long watches cf the
night she received thc kindly and ?f
fe ctior.atc ministrations of loved
Few women, if any, had more
friends in the county than Mr?. Mc
She was truly one of the "mothers
cf Israel." She was a woman of
most lovable traits cf character and
endeared herself to all with whom
she came in contact by her kind
ways and cheerful disposition.
She"will be greatly missed by her
friends as well as relatives. We must
bear in mind that an all-wise Provi
dence has taken her from our midst,
and try to bear our sorrows as best
v.-e can, trusting that we will ono
day meet her :n the great beyond.
Mother's flowers of ferns and
snowdrops were placed about her in
the casket, so symbolic of the beau
tiful lifo, the fragrance of which will
last on, just :.;s the fragrance of thc
We tender thc bereaved family
our heartfelt sympathy in their hour
of sore trial an^ deep grief.
She is survived by her husband,
one sister, and seven step-children.
Farewell darling, till God bids us
leave this world of woe, and enter
in that happy land, there to wear a
crown with Thee.
"We loved her, yes, we loved her,
But Jesus loved her more,
And He has sweetly called her
To yonder shining shore.
The golden gates were open,
A gentle voice said "Come."
And with farewells unspoken
She calmly entered home."
