Greenville (Texas) Evening Banner, Tue, 3 Oct 1939, page 4, C.C. Eiland, Well Known Business Man, Passes Away

At his home, 2904 Jones-st where he had been confined to his bed for thirteen days, C.C. (Cedar) Eiland, well known Greenville business man and one of the best known citizens in this section of the state, died at 4:20 o'clock Monday afternoon.

Mr. Eiland, a resident of Hunt county practically all of his life, has been in failing health for several months.

Last rites will be observed at 5 o'clock this afternoon. Services will be held from the Neer and Lybrand chapel, with Dr. C.B. Jackson pastor of the First Baptist church officiating. The body will then be carried to Dumas for interment.

Pallbearers will be: John Cain, W.O. Southern, (unreadable), Terry Bunch, Henry Hammack and Creed Voyles.

A native of Hunt-co, Mr. Eiland was born on December 17, 1870, in the Shady Grove community, east of Greenville and was reared to manhood in that section.

With the exception of a few years in West Texas, Mr. Eiland had spent all his life in Hunt county and was one of its best known and most highly esteemed citizens. He had countless friends who were today joining the bereaved relatives in mourning his passing.

Mr. Eiland had been engaged in business in Greenville for many years and his fair and courteous treatment and eagerness to serve won innumerable friends. Honest and upright and always willing to give his fellowman the benefit of any doubt, Mr. Eiland gained the reputation of being a man who would not take unfair advantage of those he dealt with in business transactions.

He enjoyed the associations of his friends and stood ready to render them whatever assistance he could at any time. For years he had been active in civic affairs and willingly aided in the furtherance of projects for the benefit of Greenville and this section.

Mr. Eiland was a member of the Greenville Masonic lodge and the Royal Neighbors.

He was first married to Exar Alexander and she preceded him in death on January 8, 1910. Later he was married to Annie Dora Morgan and she died on December 31, 1911. Some time later he was married to Beulah Scott, who survives him.

Also surviving are three children Mrs. C.P. Sanford and Miss Annie Dora Eiland of Greenville and Mrs. Estelle Armbrust of Los Angeles; two grandchildren, Miss Elaine Sanford and Fagg Sanford, Jr. of Greenville; two sisters, Mrs. M.T. Alexander of Lubbock and Mrs. Fred Hale of Trent, Texas, and two brothers, W.W. Eiland of Stanton and B.B. Eiland of Shreveport, La. One son, Jake D. Eiland preceded him in death on January 28, 1918.
