OLD TIME RESIDENT
Of Elwood Died Last Night After a Long Illness
Wiseman Armfield, an old time resident of Elwood, but who has made his home for a number of years in Anderson, died last night at Marion, after an illness extending over a period of many months. At times he rallied and seemed to be enjoying his usual health, but relapses were frequent, and the last one was more than he could fight off. He was seventy-five years old, and the father of Mrs. Jennie Adams, of this city. Mrs. Adams, with Mrs. Mary Mason, went to Marion this afternoon.
