Former Citizen
Dies at Home
In Mississippi
Greeneville citizens were shocked
to learn of the death of Mr. E. D.
Self, at his home, Meridian, Miss.,
Sunday afternoon.
Davis Self was born and reared to
manhood in Greeneville. Some
twenty years ago he removed to Mis
sissippi, where he married. His first
wife died about twelve years ago.
To this first union three children were
born. He was married the second
time about ten years ago, and to this
last union two cildren were born, his
last wife and all the children surviv
ing him.
Mr. Self was 52 years of age. He
was a son of the late Rev. W. F. Self.
His last visit to his old home was
only a few weeks ago, when he ac
companied the remains of his aged
father here for burial. On account
of the press of important business
at that time, he was unable to spend
but a few hours here, and as a result
did not get to see many of jhis old
associates, acquaintances and friends
For a number of years Mr. Self
had been district manager in Mis
sissippi for a big insurance company,
Since the outbreak of the war he has
devoted much time to wark work and
at the time of his death he was Fed
eral labor agent for his district. He
was a man that made friends easily
and had the happy faculty of retain
ing them. He will be greatly missed
by the people of Meridian and that
section of Mississippi where he was
best known.
Interment took place in Meridian
Monday afternoon by the side of his
first wife.

there. He left Chuckey July 4, 1916,
for Lenoir City, Tenn., and from

But with the soul may all be well.
