Philander Herring.

On Wednesday night, the 14th inst., Capt. Philander Herring died suddenly of heart failure at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Richcreek, with whom he made his home, Mrs. Richcreek being his only living child.

Capt. Herring was one of our oldest and most prominent citizens, and was a member of the old and well-known Herring family of this county.

During the civil war Capt, Herring served with gallantry in the Confederate army,although he was very much opposed to States attempting to secede and voted against the ratification of the ordinance of secession while a soldier at Harper's Ferry. After the close of the war Capt. Herring held several offices of honor and trust and in 1881 was elected a member of the Virginia Legislature.

In politics he was a staunch republican. He possessed the entire respect and esteem of the community in which he spent his long life, and was noted for his honesty and his courage.

He had been for many years a consistent member of the Methodist church. He was eighty-five years old and was one of the most active and vigorous old men in the State.
