Found in the State 24 July 1922: News was received in Columbia yesterday of the death at Jacksonville, Fla., of William R. Girardeau, son of the late Rev. John R. (not a typo, but it should say John L.) Girardeau D. D. The body will be brought to Columbia today and the funeral services will be held at Elmwood cemetery following the arrival of the afternoon Seaboard Air Line train from Florida. This should make the funeral hour about 6 o'clock. Mr. Girardeau, a native Columbian, died at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He is survived by two brothers, John B. Girardear of Thomaston, Ga., and Claude H. Girardeau of Columbia; one sister, Mrs. George A. Blackburn of Columbia, and one son, R. M. Girardeau of Florida. He was 58 years of age and a member of the Presbyterian church. Mr. Girardeau spent the early part of his life in Columbia and was here again a short time during the war. He had many friends in the city who join with the family in mourning his death.
