Terrell Covington

Special to The State

Florence Jan 8, 1915

Terrell Covington, an aged and most highly respected and esteemed citizen of Wadesboro, N.C., died Saturday evening at an infirmary in Morganton, N.C., after an illness that lasted several weeks.

Mr. Covington was one of the most remarkable men of this section for he had lived here for a time. Mr Covington was in his 84th year and up to the time of this illness that ultimately caused his death, he was as active as any average citizen. Even though he was in his 84th year his features were strong and healthy and his hair was nearly as black as it was in his 50th year. Mr. Covington was born in Richmond county, North Carolina and had lived in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and of the late at Wadesboro, N.C. He had been twice married. His first wife Miss Eranda Chappell and by this union ten children were born, eight sons and two daughter. Of this number four sons and one daughter preceded him to the grave, T. Jefferson Covington, Charles M. Covington, DeCarr Covington, Wilson P. Covington and Mrs. O. L. Bass. Those living are given below.

Mr. Covington's second wife was Miss Beckie Reddy, and she with the five children by his first wife survive him. Henry L. Covington of Pensacola, Robert V. Covington of Jacksonville and Hampton Covington of south Florida, Dr, James(sic) Covington of Florence and Mrs. Robert L. Edwards of Darlington. Besides these there are a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as a wide circle of friends who grieve over his departure.

The funeral services were held at Wadesboro Tuesday morning at the Episcopal church and were conducted by the rector, the Rev. Mr Hank? and the interment was made in the cemetery at that place. Owing to a wreck on the Seaboard near Morganton, N.C., the funeral had to be delayed 24 hours as the body could not reach Wadesboro until late Monday night.
