Mr. W. F. Wyatt died at the
--'P"Iome of his daughter-in-law,
Mrs. James M. Carpenter, on
Sunday morning, 19th-inst., in
the 81st year of his life. His
wife had preceeded him to the
grave about 15 years. He leaves
two sons, Mr. James R. Wyatt
of Easley, and Mr. John Wyatt
of Brushy Creek. Mr. Wyatt
was a member and deacon of
Mt. Pisgah Baptist church and
had been for many years. He
was a good man and a useful
citizen, ever ready to lend a
helping hand to those in need.
He had been an industrious and
economical man and had man
aged to leave his children and
grand-children some good prop
erty, but best of all he left them
the legacy of an honored name.
and a good name is rather to be
chc .n than great riches.
Monday afternoon, 20th inst.,
his funeral services were held
by his pastor, Rev. D.W. Hiott,
at Mt. Pisgah church in the
presence of a large congrega
tion. The old soldiers acted as
pall bearers. His body rests by
the side of his wife in the
church yard to await the morn
ingof the resurrection. Mr.John
N. Wyatt, of Easley, is his only
