Gone to His Eternal Home
The subject of this notice, Mr. E. H. McKenzie, after a lingering
illness of seven months died last Friday night at his home in Dillon. Mr. McKenzie
had not been confined to his bed and on the night of his death ate supper with his
family and retired at his usual hour and in thirty minutes his spirit had taken flight
to the God who gave it. Mr. McKenzie in early… was but a beardless boy in the
reserve force in the Civil War. After the war he married a Miss Dollie Spivy.
From this union ten children were born. His widow, eight children and several
grandchildren survive him.
Rev. W. C Kirkland conducted the funeral services at this home.
His remains were taken to the Cemetery at Dothan where many of his family are
interred. And Mrs. O. C. Hayes concluded the funeral service at the grave where
a great number of kindred and friends had assemble to pay the last sad tribute
to this good man who had lived among them for sixty-five years. Mr. McKenzie had
never united with any church but his charities and blameless life will count for
more on the judgment day than empty confessions.
The Herald extends heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family.
