Peacock, Benaja - Mr. Benaja Peacock died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. R. M. Rainey, in Schley County last Monday night at 8 o'clock at the advanced age of eighty-six years, nine months and one day. He had been in declining health for some years, but his wonderful vitality kept him alive much longer than his family and friends anticipated. His death was the result of the human machinery wearing out. Mr. Peacock was one of the pioneers of Marion County and was honored and respected by all. He was a native of Wayne County, N. C., but moved to this county in 1836 when the Indians inhabited this section of country, and he has resided here ever since, except a short time ago when he went to his daughter's home in Schley County. By honesty, integrity and good business methods he managed to accumulate a good deal of property, to what extent however we are not prepared to state. He leaves five children: Messrs. B. T. and O. L. Peacock, Mrs. S. B. Story, Mrs. R. M. Rainey and Mrs. Tillman, the last two residing in Schley and Sumter Counties respectively. His remains were brought to Buena Vista Wednesday morning and taken to the family burial ground near the home of Mr. J.L. Bacon, three miles in the country, where they were laid to rest. Rev. R. L. Wiggins performed the burial services. A number of people of Schley County accompanied the remains, and they were joined here by a number from Buena Vista who attended the burial. May his ashes rest in peace.
