Last Thursday morn
was a very sad death at

the seventeen-year-old daughter
of Mr. J. B. Turner, fell a victim
But a few days previous she
had been called home from Win
throp, which institution she en
tered last fall, to help care for
other members of 'he .family, all
of whom were in the clutches of
the grip. Soon she was taken,
and rapidly succumbed to the
ravages of the deadly disease
that had befallen her. At the
time of her death several other
members of the family were still
sick, all of whom at this writing
we are glad to report as improv

END OF A LONG AND USEFUL LIFE.
After having lived a score of
years beyond the allotted time of
man Capt. Thomas M. Lyles died
Friday at the home of his son
in-law, Maj. Thos. V. Wood ward
of Rockton, and his remains were
interred Saturday in the burial
ground at Rocky Creek Baptist
church of which he had been a
member lur more than half a
century, a large part of the time
in an official capacity. He was
born Oct. 13, 1811. His early
education was received nt Mount
Zion from which academy he en
tered the sophomore class of the
South Carolina college, graduat
ing from that institution in 130
at the early age of 19, the dis
tinguished Dr. Thornwell being
one of his classmates. Early
a!ter graduation he married Miss
E:iza Peay, of which marriage were
born thirteen children, seven of
whom survive to-day, as follows:
John W. Lyles, clerk of court for
Fairfield county; Thos. Lyles,
Midway, La.; B. E. Lyles, Monti
cello; Mrs. J. F. Lyles, Lexing
ton; Mrs. Poellnitz of Alabama;
Mrs. A. E. Davis, Monticello, and
Mrs. Thos. Woodward of Rock
ton. Six of his seven soi. ent
to the war,- two of whom-Wil
liam Boyk~and Austin Peay
fell in batt'.
The following paragraph is
taken from a special correspond
ence to The State:

Lyles, who wa killed by Indians.
On this plantation and in this
neighborhood the Lyles families
suffered in the Revolutionary I
war from Tarlton's raids and in
th~e Confederate war from Slher- J
man's plundering and burning."t
"His brother, William S., father
of William H. Lyles of Cohinbia,
was a member of the secession 2
convention; his father was a I
legislator and was colonel of a
volunteer regiment during the (
Nullification war cloud, and his'
grandfather, Aromanius Lyles, a (
colonel in the Revolution, was a x
member of the convention that
gave the State's consent to the
United States constitution. He
voted agaiinst it, however, as did
most of the up-country deiegates. ]

Patrick Henry, and they were

Capt. Lyles' long life was spent
on his farm in the western part
of the county where he gave close
attention to his business, never
offering for public office. Since
tne death of his wife about five
years agio be had made his home
wi:h his chiildrentand up to the
last retained all his faculties to a
remarkable degree. He wuas per
hap3 the oldest white man in the
county, though when a few weeks
aigo he left his son's in Winns
boro, he was one of four nonge
narians living in this town.
