QUAY D. WiLLIFORD DEAD.
I A Prominent Young Business Man.
It is our painful duty to record the
death of Mr. Quay D. Williford, one
of the most. prominent business men
of the community. He had been
seriously ill about ten days, and died
about eight o'clock on Thursday morn.
'Mr. Williford was born on the 30th
of March, 1867, and was the youngest
~son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Willford.
Preparatory to his business career ho
took a course in the business college
at Louisville, Ky., and began business
with his brother, the late W. H. Wuili
ford, under the firm name of Q. D.
f ford withdrew, and Mr. Q. D. Willi
~y ford continued in his own accont
, with remarkable success. In 1893, he
was forced to make an assignment on
account of liabilities as an endorser.
f He then became manager for bis
n brother-in-law, Mr. J. L. Mimnaugh,
, of Columbia, until January,. 1897,
t when he resumed businesas in his own
e name. Though a young man he pos
., sessed (remarkable executive abilities
e and fine business qualities. He seemed
j peculiarly fitted for the mercantile
,fbusiness and had built up a large
businesr. His store was always filled
with salable goods, and at the time of
his death his stock was perhaps the
largest stock of dry goods ever
brought to Winnsboro. Few men in
Winnaboro have been more successful
in business He was progressive, con
stantly adding improvements. He
will be missed in the business affairs
of our community.
In 1893, Mr. Williford married Miss
Addie Robinson, of Edgemoor, York
County, who with three small children
srvive~him. The entire community
rsincerely deplore the sudden end.
The funeral services were held at
the Methodist Church at 11 o'clock un
lFriday morning, and the body buried
in the Presbyterian Church yard. Tbe
pall bearers were:
Active -A. W. Brown, L E. Owens,
J. Weathersby, Ri. C. Gooding, Dr.

Is a pecan grove. That kind of an

The trees are not subject to disease,
and are said to live 600 years. It is
money well invested that would be
hard for the boys to throw away. Sin

more than $40 worth of nuts in a-year.
The nuts have never been a drg on
