Mr. W. C. Dewese of this place died, last Sunday after a short illness. He was working at the planing mill till Thursday, when he was taken sick. Mr. Dewese was in the 65th year of his age, and was apparently hale and hearty up to the time he was stricken by his last illness. He was raised near Charlotte, but for almost a third of a century has been living in or near Polkton.
Mr. Dewese was a man of the finest qualities of heart and mind. He was affable, just and consistent. He was a member and one of the leaders in the Presbyterian church in Polkton. Attentive always to duty, he stood always ready to do his part and more in the upbuilding of the Master's kingdom. Three sons, Burgess E., Maynard, and Clarence, all, at present, living in our town, and Mrs. Bessie Hotz, who makes her home in Orlando is the only daughter."
Burial service were held Tuesday and were conducted by Rev. Mr. White. Interment was at the Williams cemetery.
