"Died at his residence on Beatie's Prairie, Delaware district, C.N., Capt. Augustus Vann Edmondson, on the 11th inst., of gržppe combined with pneumonia. The subject of this notice was born in Pickins district, South Carolina, 64 years ago. He was the son of M. S. Edmondson who moved from South Carolina to old Cass county, Ga., about the time of the general emigration of the Cherokees. M. S. Edmondson died when his son Vann was a mere lad. Maj. W. C. Wyly became his guardian, and provided for him a liberal education. When he was of age his property was turned over to him and he married Miss Lura A. Dinman, daughter of Felix G. Dinman, a man of considerable wealth. A few years previous to the war he moved from Georgia to Ozark, Ark. When the war broke out he raised a company and was attached to General Hindman's command. Toward the close of the war he moved his family to Coffman county, in the same state, where he resided for several years. It was while he was living there his first wife died, who was a most estimable woman.
In 1872 he came to Beatie's Prairie on a visit to R.* F. Wyly and while there he became acquainted with Mrs. Nancy M. Adair, the daughter of James Allen Thompson, to whom he was shortly after married. After the death of his father-in-law he and his wife became the owners of the old homestead and converted it in one of the finest farms in Delaware district.
By his first wife he left four children, three of them are adopted citizens of this nation and in prosperous circumstances. By his last wife he left one son, James Turner. He preferred the occupation of a farmer above all avocations and in the management of his farm for profitable returns was excelled by but few. Endowed by nature with intellect far above the average, and this supported by a combative temperment, marked him a man of great force of character.
To those who knew him best, he exhibited splendid traits of character. He was kind and hospitable to his friends, to the poor and the needy around him. In his business relations with men he was prompt and scrupulously honest. By his frugality, energy and industry, all of which he possessed in an eminent degree, he left his family in excellent circumstances.
Friend, of my childhood, boyhood, early man hood and even down to my old age, I bid you a long and affectionate farewell. W."
