Rev. B. Holder
Mr. Editor: To scatter sunshine in
the lives of all tl ons around us and
-trow flowers in their pathway while
living and not wait until they sleep in
the bosom01 of mother e.t tn hould be
the highest purpose ot us atl. Yet there
are mnuuy tihiigs a)1)tt tour loved ones
when they are gone horn us that we
cherish and would like to keep fresh
and green in ouir menorie.s which can
best, ho done by manking a record of
them. And that, Mr. Editor, is my
apology for trcspassimg uponm your val
unble s race to say a few things and pay
a smai tribute to my late lamented
friend, Rev. R. holder. It is, of course,
known that on the morning of January
29, 1918, his spirit took its flight and
returned to the (od who gave it, and
:hat we laid his body away in the
cemetery at Secona Biaptist church the
day tollowing, beside his first wife, to
await the great reiurrection. l)r. 1).
M. Ramsey conducted the last sad rites
and paid a beautiful tribute to his
memory and his grand sons acted as
aall bearers. his age was not clear,
but from the best data obtainable had
he lived until the 'id day of next March
he would have been 95 years old. He
was the oldest citizen, I think, in this'
county - ecrtainly the oldest preacher
and it is thought he was the oldest Hap i
list preacher in the staa'
He was twice married. his first wife,
was Miss Mnlinda E. Ierguson to whom
he was married about 1854). She died
n 1885. To this union were born eleven
hil.iren, towit: Mrs. lItebecca Smalley,

Mrs. Addie I)avis, It. I,. holder, Mrs.
Nora .lones, Mrs. Sallie (reer, M. MI.
holder, and Mirs. Iola Porter, all of
whom are still living, except .4n ms's
holder and M. M. Iolder, and all grown
:and married and have familie.
About 1894 he was married to Miss
Rebecca Kennemore, of North Carolina,
who with one daughter, Miss Eva,

member of the Masonic order ini goTh

vigor and a clear conception of his dut
he never lost an opportunity to Iiiglm

the opportunity of knowing one who is
so worthy of eipulatid'n as was the sub- I
ject of this sketch. She was so pure'
and high-minded, always looking for the
right side and sticking to it all all odds.
As long as she was able she vistted
the sick and the poor, with an open
hand ever ready to administer food and
raiment to the needy, many of whom,
when they learn of her death, will 'rise
up and call her blessed."
Mrs Thomas before her marriage to
.1. P. Thomas of Spartanburg, was Miss
Elizabeth Ponder, a sister of W. J.
Ponder of Dacusville. She was left
twenty years ago a widow with six
children to rear and educate, and, though
many times the way, no doubt, seemed
long and hard, still she was spared to
complete this task, living to see them
all grown, an( three of them married.
Their na tm's are as follows: John P.
Thomas, G reenville; IL. P. Thomas,!
(reenville: Iucius P. Thomas, Dacus
ville; Mrs. Arthur Christop!.er, I)un
can; Mrs. 1"rank Blunt, .:reenville;
Miss Bessie 'Thomas, Dacusville. All
of them were at her bedside when the
end caime, except Mrs. Christopher, who
was detained by severe illness in her
home These dear children have been
a blessing and comfort for years to their
invalid mother, and Ict no deed undone
that Could he done for her comfort.
The end came so quietly and peace.

twin-sister of death, and without a sign
of pain, she crossed the "Great Divide."
Who can tell of the rapture when
those eyes, so long dim to the light of
day, had that promised vision, the beau
tiful sight of heaven and its glories!
That is one of the sweetest thoughts to
think that that veil of darkness has
been removed, and she can now "see
Rim face to face."
The funeral services were beautiful
in their simplicity, being conducted in
the presence of many relatives and
friends by Rev. Mr. Aiken, pastor of
Iterea Baptist church, of which she had I
long been a consecrated mnctiber. The
interment was at tho family burial plot
near her girlhood home, and she was
laid beside her husbantd in that final
resting place. where the winds will sing
a lonely requiem over the mound that
contains all tihat is mortal of this loved
one, whose going away has left a va
cancy that can never be idled.
