---The announcement of the death
of two highly respected colored peo
ple of Walhalla will be received with
genuine regret by white and colored
people alike in Oconeo wherever they
were known. Philip /Mattlson, Well
known to (ho people of Oconee, he
having been ono of the prominent
and well-to-do colored men of this
section, died nt his home, Just cut
of Walhalla, on Saturday, Jan. 11th,
and was buried on Sunday afternoon,
tho 12th, large crowds attending tho
funeral, for he was woll known tb
our colored population and held tho
respect of all. Ho had been in poor
health for several years, having suf
fered a partial stroko of paralysis,
which rendered him incapable of
continuing tho active life to which ho
was accustomed as a farmer. Ho wa.i
about 00 years of age and leavos his
wlfo and several children to mourn
his death. * ? ! ! Ono of tho sad
I dost deaths wo have heard of receni
j
ly In this seo tipn waa that of Bollo
MdFall, who was found unconscious
on Main street (West End) en Tues
day evening ?f last week/ Shortlyuf
tor 6 o'oloek, ;by her husband, Wm.
"JWEall, who' was returning to his
homo from down-town. Belle had
boen at a home of her white employ
ore and was returning to her own
home after having finished tho work
of the day. When she got to what is
known ns the old Ephraim Cobb lots
she sank to the ground, exhausted
and almost unconscious, and was un
able to rise. Some 'hour and-a half
later William iMOFall, coming from
his work, discovered her prostrate
form. She had been lying there In
a cold rain, and inquiry from her
husband as to what was the matter
elicited only the scarcely audible re
sponse, "1 Just gave Out." She was
taken to the home, only a few hun
dred yards distant, where everything
possible was done for her, 'but with
out benefit, and she died Wednesday
morning last about ll o'clock. Belle
.MePall was one of the young colored
women of the old school-industri
ous, courteous and Jealous,of her
reputation at all times, leading an
exemplary life and having the high
est respect of all, white and colored
alike. Wo have heard m?re expres
sions of sincere regret at the occur
rence of tho two deaths above re
ferred to than to any we recall at the
passing ol colored citizens. Their re
moval from the community 'by tho
hand of death has made a profound
and sorrowful impression on all who
knew thom. Belle McFall was about
40 years of age and is survived by
her husband and other relatives. She
was a daughter of a formers-pastor
of the colored Methodist chtirch here
whoso name we do not now recall.
Tho funeral took place last Thursday
and the interment was made in Flat
Rock cemetery, as was ainu that of
Philip Mottison.
