Savannah, Ga., May 4, Major William Frederick Penniman, who in the Civil War was a member of the Fourth Georgia Cavalry, and who has been for many years a well known business man engaged in exporting, died yesterday at noon at his residence here, and his funeral will be held tomorrow with two services, one here and one in Brunswick, where the interment will be.

He was married in Thomasville in 1866 to the daughter of Dr. Seth Samuel Adams, lived there three years and then went to Brunswick. He lived there thirty-three years, prominent in business affairs and municipal politics. He came to Savannah six years ago. He was a prominent member of the Gens. McGlashan, Evans and Young.

Escorts of honor from Savannah and Brunswick camps will guard the remains.
