just outside the aviation grounds.
Heading back into tho 8-mile

sustained several fractures and
bruises. The clothing of both was
torn and their bodies were so cover

The intelligence of the death of Dr.
C. A. Webb, which occurred after a
protracted illness at his home at
Hartwell. Ga., on tho 23d ultimo,
was received here with profound Bad
ness. Dr. Webb was for many years
quito a successful and prominent
physician of Hartwell, until age, with
its accompanying decline of health,
compelled him, a few years ago, to
retire from a professional to a pri
vate life. He was a member of the
Presbyterian church, having joined
only a few weeks prior to his death.
His life was one of usefulness and
cheerfulness. Dr. Webb was con
nected by ties of blood and marriage

lies of this and other Stales. He
had been twice married, his llrst
wife being Miss Myra Benson, daugh
ter of the late John B. Benson, of

Ono of Oconee's Oldest ?nd Most
Highly Respected Citizens,
This morning the sad news of the
death of Major James Seaborn was
passed from one to another of Wal
halla's citizens, and a feeling nf deep
sadness pervaded the whole commu
nity. Hast night, just at 12 o'clock.
Major Seaborn breathed his last, and
a long, honorable and useful career
was brought to a close.
Por some time it had been realized
thai Mr. Seaborn was rltlcally 111,
yet all hoped that there would still
be a change, and that he would be
restored to his family and friends.
The news of his death, therefore, was
not unexpected, yet lt came as a
shock and brought deep sorrow to
James Seaborn was born In Green
ville county November 5, 1831, and
was a son of Major George Seaborn,
who In the early history of the State
established and edited "The Farmer
and Planter," (Pendleton,) the first
agricultural paper In the South. For
a number of years Mr. Seaborn re
sided at Pendleton with his parents,
and lt was there that he got his first
Insight into the printing business,
which lie mastered, but did not fol
low as a profession.
On February 23d, 1871, ho was
happily married to Miss Annie Laura
Mason, daughter of the late Benja
min and Laura Mason, who resided
in the Fair Play section of Oconee.
For a number of years he and his
wife r' aided at Fair Play, and dur
ing tlu;? time Mr. Seaborn held the
office of trial justice at that place.
About thirty years ago Mr. Seaborn
moved from Fair Play to Walhalla,
having been elected Clerk of Court
for Oconee, which ellice he held for
sixteen years, niling it with signal
ability and satisfaction to the pubic
j until he voluntarily retired from ac
I live political life. Upon retiring
from the office of Clerk of Court Mr.
Seaborn, realizing that Time was lay
; ing upon bim his relentless hand, de
voted his life to his family and his
home exclusively until four years ago,
! when ho was sought by public olfi
? dals to act in the capacity of clerk
for the County Supervisor and Oom
I missioners, which position be acccpt
I ed and filled with ability up to the
time ho was stricken with lils last
illness, about live weeks ago.
IBs was an enviable record. Faith
ful to every trust, honest and honor
able always, true to all mankind, he
was no less active in church and
charitable causes than in private and
political affairs. He had been for
about 40 years an active and consist
ent member of the Baptist church,
and during his long residence in Wal
halla was recognized as a pillar in
the church of that denomination
here, and al the time of his death
was the honored treasurer of the
Beaverdam Baptist Association. He
was also a Royal Arch Mason, and
had held offices In the Masonic lodges
at Pendleton, Fair Play and Walhalla.
I In every sphere of life Mr. Seaborn
measured up to a high standard, and
his name is honored wherever
Mr. Seaborn ls survived hy his
wife, five sons and one daughter
