Deaths At Dillon
Mr Welcome Ivey Died From Paralysis.
Mr Peter McEachern Killed in a Gin.
Special to the State.
Dillon---Dec 8---Welcome Ivey, a prominent citizen of the Dothan neighborhood,
four miles west of Dillon, was stricken with paralysis Saturday, and died in a few hours.
His death was quite a surprise to every one as there had been no previous illness.
Mr Peter McEachern was killed today at his home near Hamer. It appears
that he was personally attending to his gin and in endeavoring to clear the saws of some
obstruction he was caught by them and horribly mangled.
He died from hemorrhage and shock before medical aid could reach him.
Mr McEachern and his brother, Ed, were running successfully one of the finest farms
in the upper section of the county, and the tragedy deprives Marion County of one of
its most valued citizens.
