DEATH CLAIMS CHARLES FLEMING
Prominent insurance Man Had Been Ill for Several Months
WAS NATIVE OF COLUMBUS
Charles Fleming, Who Died Yesterday Morning, Was Up to a Few Months Ago, Sectetary of the Southeastern Tariff Associates
Charles Campbell Fleming, one of the best known and most popular fire insurance men of Atlanta, died at his residence, at 375 Courtland Street, early yesterday morning.
Mr. Fleming had been suffering from a complication of troubles and had been ill for several months, but it was only a few days ago that his condition became precarious.
Mr. Fleming had for over twenty years, served as the secretary of the Southeastern Tariff Association and had friends all over the southland. He was a man of a peculiarly gentle nature and disposition and was well loved in every section of the country in which he worked.
Mr. Fleming was born in Macon on December 6, 1847, and was 59 years old. He was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. allen Fleming. The first position that Mr. Fleming ever held was in the banking business with is father in Columbia, Georgia, where his father moved in 1859 and where most of his children were reared.
In 1873 Mr. Fleming went to New York to accept a position with the New York Underwriters Insuramce Company, and from that time had been actively engaged in the insurance business in various capacities.
Mr. Fleming had always been thorough in his work and had extensive experience. On this account, he was offered the position of secretary of the southeastern Tariff Association about twenty years ago, and held that position until very recently. At a recent meeting of the association, he was tendered the position for life.
The deceased is survived by his wife, who was miss Minnie Gay, a sister of Captain Edward S. Gay, of Atlanta, by his son, Charles C. Fleming, Jr., and by two brothers, James M. Fleming, of savannah and William P. Fleming, of Macon. Mr. Fleming was related to the family of Charles E. Campbell, of Macon.
The funeral services will be conducted this afternoon at 4 o'clock from St. Luke's Episcopal Church, and the interment will be at Oakland.
