Death of Capt. Kay.

thc Kcowie Courier, writing under
date of June 24th, says: "Tho death
of Capt. G. W. Kay, an honored citizen
of Oconee, occurred at bis home on
'Colonel's Fork creek, two mile? from
Westminster, last Thursday morning
just as the sun was peeping over the
eastern hills. After burial -services,
conducted at the grave by bis pastor,
Kev. K.M. Du Bose, assisted by Rev.
R. L. Dollie, his body was laid to rest
in the town cemetery at noon on Friday
with Masonic honors, members of the
Walhalla and Seneca lodges joining in
the ceremonies. Capt. Kay was born
in Laurens County, March 16, lb33, and
had lived the allotted three score years
and tcu. Ho grew up to young man
hood in Laurens and then moved to
Anderson County, where he met and
married Miss Mary Dickson in 18-??.
Mrs. Kay died nine years ago. Mr.
Kay came to Oconee tho first time in
iHiiO. After serving through the Civil
War he moved to Plckens County and
resided on Twelve Mile River. Here
moved to Oconee in IHM, where he hus
since resided. Three children, Mrs.
Lula HerndOn, ofPelzor, \V. M. and
O. W. Kay, of Westminster, survive.
Captain Kay united with the Metho
dist Church twenty-eight years ago
and took an active part in the Church
work until his health failed. He was
a man of great influence in this section
and had many warm friends. In fact,
if he had a single enemy, we never
heard of it."
