DEATH OF MAJ. JOHN. FERGUSON.
A Pall of Sadness Thrown Over Our
Our community was shocked to
learn of the tregic death of one of
our oldest and most respected citi
zens, Maj. John Ferguson, w.hich oc. I
curred on his plantation in this Co11n
ty, on Thursday morning last, 31st
ult. His remains were carried to i
Greenville and laid to rest in Spring
wood cemetery in the presence of a
large concourse of soriowing friends. I
The burial services were conducted
by RAY. Z. T. Cody, pastor First
Baptist church, and Rev. A. J. S. t
Thomas, of the Baptist Courier, a
life long frlend of the deceased.
It seems that MUj. Fergnson had
gone to his lot, in which a vicious bull
was kept, and tie animal had at.
tacked and gored him to death.
Maj. Ferguson -leaves surving him
his wife, who was Miss Harriet M.
Grady, six children, 'three sois and
three daughters. Another soa, the
eldent, the Rev. Henry Grady Fergu
son, died several years ago. The
surviving children are John Fergut
son, Jame s .1. Ferguson, Dr. Frank
Ferguson, Mrs. Andrew 13. Wardlaw,
of Greenville; Mrs. Harry C. Valen
tine, of Trenton, N. J., and Mrs.
Kemble White, of Fairmont, W. Va.
Major Ferguson was for a number
of years the senior member of the
firm of Ferguson & Miller, which
conducted the largest merchandise
business in the upper part of South
Carolina fn 1898 the partnership
wvas dissolved and Miaj. Ferguson re
mioved with his family to the old
homestead in this county, where he
continued to reside until his death at
the age of 65 years.
Maj. Ferguson was a Confederate
soldier and served through the four
years in the Hampton Legion, where
his genius in business insde him in
valuable in the commissary an d ordi
Few men won the admiration of the
people of this and Greenville coun.
ty to a greater degree than Mojor
Ferguson. None desorved it more.
Ho took an active interest in public
affairs, .using his influence and his
means for the welfare of others.
Maj. Ferguson resided on_ the old
homestead in Piokens county until he
was fourteen years of age. ie then
entered Thalian Academy, better
known as Slab Town, remaining in
that institution three years. He sub
sequently became a student at Fur
man University for one session. In
1860 he entered the law oflico of
Maj. B. F. Perry of Greenville, under
whose direction he pursued his legal
studies for about a year, leaving to
enter the Confederate army. -LHe
joined Brooks' Troop of the 11am pton.
Ever since the war Maj. Ferguson I
has given his'attention to merchan
dising, and hmas been eminently suc
cessful, having become one of the
w idely- and favorably-known mer
chants in the State. Enterprise,
honesty, uprightness and integrity
hva. been the characteristics of his
business career, and his private life
has been that of an honorable, high
toned Christian gentleman.
The bereaved wvife and children
have thu heartfelt sy mpathy of our
entire community, aud trust lie who
has taken away their loved one will
send the wvhite-winged angel of peace
into their hearts to comfort them,
and may they re-alize that God knows
b~est, and can in perfect trust in his
divine will, sny, Thy will, not ours,
O God1, be done.
