Mr. R. Wallace Dead
The community was shocked when the sad news was received in Dillon announcing the death of Mr. R. Wallace of Rowland, NC who passed away Wednesday after a long illness, although his death was not unexpected.
Mr. Wallace was a son of the late William L and Mrs. Elizabeth Wallace, who preceeded him to the grave years ago. Mr. Wallace was born and reared in Moore county near Carthrige, NC and later he moved to this county, and lived near Little Rock for a number of years. After which he moved near Rowland and spent the remainder of his life. Mr. Wallace first married Miss Maggie Lester of that place, who died about nine years ago. Of this union there, were born a number of children. Mr. Wallace lived a faithful widower until last year when he married Miss Lottie Proctor of Rowland. The unanimous verdict of his fellow citizens and friends is that he was a prosperous farmer, a faithful man and a good citizen.
Mr. Wallace leaves a young widow and four children to mourn his loss. Messrs Frank, Henry and Lock Wallace, and Mrs. Geo. Bond, all of Rowland. His surviving brothers and sisters are: Messrs Ira, Arch, Needam and T. W. Wallace, Mrs. W. A. Hamilton and Mrs. John Taylor all of Dillon and Little Rock. Mr. Wallace has long been a faithful member of Oakland Methodist church and was a Christian man.
His family and friends have our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavement. The funeral service was conducted by his pastor, Rev. F. L. Glennon of Little Rock, at 4:30 o'clock, Thursday evening, and he was laid to rest at the Baker cemetery to await the resurrection. "His Niece"
