Obituary of William Miles Nevitt, Jr.

"Death of an Old Citizen" Anderson Intelligencer Issue of Sept. 30 1868

We are pained to record the death of Capt. William Nevitt, an aged and highly respected citizen of the District, which sad event occurred at his residence near this village on Monday last, after an illness of only a few days. He was a native of Maryland and emigrated when quite young to Fairfield District in this state, where he married and continued to reside for many years. He came to this district some thirty years ago and has always been greatly esteemed as a citizen of upright character and hones faithfulness to society. He was a deacon of the Baptist Church at the time of his death and for many years previous and had been a member of that denomination for more than a half century. He commanded a company in the War of 1812 and was stationed somewhere on the coast, we believe. After a long life of usefulness and honor, with a numerous line of descendents to mourn his departure from this world, he has been gathered to his fathers and is now enjoying the rest that remains for the finally faithful. We are informed that this aged patriarch has often expressed a desire of late to witness the country once more at peace, with this exception, was perfectly resigned to death. His illness was of short duration and only three days before being called to the realities of an eternal world, he was engaged in the ordinary duties of life. He was nearly eighty-five years old and was regular in attendance upon divine worship, up to the Sabbath before his illness which terminated his career upon earth.
