Death oftDr. William E. Prescott
Dr. William E. Prescott died a
his home JO miles west of Edgefiel
Monday afternoon. The announce
rnent of his 'death was not un ex
pected, as he has been gradual!,
nearing the end for the past week
More than a year ago he became :
victim of stomach trouble of ?
malignant form and underwent ai
operation in Augusta in April
11)15. For a time it appeared tha
he would regain his health, hut sey
eral months ago the former troubh
re-asserted itself and a second ope
ration became necessary. Iii?
strength was too far spent for tin
second operation to afford evei
temporary relief. Since return ?nf
to his home from the hospital ii
Augusta about a fortnight ago, Hr
Prescott has been steadily declining
his friends and loved ones being
prepared for the end.
During h.s entire life of 60 yean
Di. Prescott has been one of tin
most prominent and most influen
tial citizens of the county. H?
graduated in medicine in earlj
manhood and practiced his profes
sion for several years but gave it uf
in order tc devote his entire time tc
his large farming interests. Ht
moved to Edgefield in 1889 and
was one of the founders of the oil
mill at this place, devoting several
years to the management of this
enterprise, the first of the kind
in this section of the State. Find
ing that his large agricultural in
terests were suffering on account of
his absence, he moved his family
back to his country home. For
many years he also conducted a
large mt-rcantile businessathis home.
In his community life Dr. Pres
cott was above his fellows and was
regarded as a tower of strength. He
was generous and public spirited to
the extent that he bore more than
his share of every burden. In him
the sick and poor and needy found
a faithful friend, being generous to a
fault. He was one of the pillars of
Red Hill church, of which he was
a member from early life.
The funeral was^conducted at the
home Tuesday morning at ll
o'clock by Rev. J. T. Littlejohn.
Hundreds of people from adjacent
communities attended the funeral,
their presence expre?sing the es
teem and affection which they en
tertained for the departed friend.
The interment took place in the
Prescott square in the cemetery at
Edgefield in the afternoon at four
o'clock, a laj'ge number of pejsons
from the west-side attending. That
Dr. Prescott was a friend to the
colored people, was shown by the
large number of colored people 1
who were present. They realized I
that, together with the community's
loss, their loss is an irreparable one.
Dr. Prescott also had many warm
personal friends in Ed ge ti eld, his
