Xr. Editor: You are and have been s
very thoughtful and kind from time t
to time since you haTe had the mapage

publishing editori.al notice of the death s
of our people. Upon the deceased of
the subject of this sketch you said all
that was necessary for an editor to say d
I thi- k-, and yet I think more ought to
be zal by some one familiar with the
facts uf her life. Perhaps no one now
living, outside of her immediate con
nection, knew her better than the wri
ter. I knew her and her ancestry 1
back to the third generation, and I say
it advisedly, she was no ordinary ,
woman-whether considered from a
social, patriotic or business standpoint.
She came of good stock. On her ma
ternal side she was descended from the
Kincaids of revolutionary fame. On
Ler paternal side from the good old
Scotch-Irish stock Her grandfather, a
William Watt, who came to this coun
try in early life, was married to Jennie ,
Thompson, who was an aunt of my c
grandfathir, Robert Robinson; hence i
the blood kinship cxisting between us,
and always recognized cn both sides. t
Old Uncle Billy Watt, as we always
called her grandfather, used to tell
that when he and Jeuie were mar
ried he haC, only a silver dollar as his
financial stock in trade; with half of
it he bought a wool hat for himself t
and a pair of cotton cards for Jenn,..
From this small beginning, by indus- 9
try and economy, they succeeded in
building up a nice little competoney
fcr their own comfort in old age, and t
wer e able from time to time as their
children married off to start them out
with something ahead. I was at the
funeral of Aunt Jennie, and have
never witnessed on any occasion signs r
of more genuine grief than Uncle
53-att manifested. But whither is my
Miss Nancy K. Watt the eldest
daughter of John Watt and Nancy
s (Kineaid) Watt, who must have mar
ried about the close of the eighteenth
irn or the beginning of the nineteenth
century, for she was born 20th No
Svember, 1821. She was married to
John G. Rabb, known as Ql azier
Led Rabb, Marsh 12, 1840. They lived
is happily together in tbis county for
isnearly thirty-two years, when in Jan
snary, 1872, they moved to Due West,
Abbeville- county, for the purpose of
are educating their children. Mr. Rabb
ce. lived but a short time after the move
left and died 26th February, 1872. After
at his death, she carried ont successfully
they- prearranged plans, remaining
q' 't the children, except one, were
$ainated from the college, then
ab- noved back to old Fairfield in the
Ld summer o- 1877. She passed peace
ito fully from tne sorrows of eart h to the
ie- joys of heaven, as we hope sud be
for lieve, April i1, 1900. She leaves sur

edIa member of tne Presbyterian Church
l-at Hioreb, but for the last twenty-severi
ery vears o,f her life sb3 was a member ol
nent the A. R~ P. Church. I think the
tvprincipal, if not the only reason for
tl,her change in church relationship was
the for conv~enience. She died in the
ere eommunion of the Winnsboro A. R. P.
for Church, of whieh sha was a ccnsistent
and active member the last twenty
an three years or her life. One of tbh
ated peculiar characteristics of the Wati
rood family was and is kin.dness and con-.
hatl sideration toward the poor, and to

Mr. Editor: I read a communication
2 your issue of the 19th inst. from
Icklick, signed "Pansy,' complain
g of bad roads in that section and in
hich I am very harshly criticised as
apervisor. I had thought about treat
ag this article with silent contempt,
s I believe it was written by a person
tterly ignorant of the duties de
olved upon a supervisor. But as it
0ight possibly lead others into a
rrong channel of thinking, ,I deem it
iy duty to make a brief reply and en
ghten the writer a little. First, the
rriter asks, "What has become of our
ounty commissiorer? Is he dead, or

assed through Winnsboro on his way
Savannah, but I was too busy look
g after the affairs of the county to
o to the depot for a glitnpse of him.
The writer says "our roads in some
laces are impassable," and mentioned
be fact that at Buceklick a wagon
ured over and came near killing an
d colored woman. Now I would
