Brother of B.D. and O.P. Heath Dies at Matthews

Matthews, March 4--Special. E.J. Heath passed away at his home on church street this morning at 6 o'clock. He had been suffering for the past six months with cancer of the face. He spent three months at a hospital in Indianapolis and soon after his return from there went to Johns Hopkins hospital, but nothing could stay the ravages of the dreadful disease, and surrounded by his beloved wife and all of his children, he passed peacefully away this morning.

Mr. Heath was born in Long Street, Lancaster county, S.C. sixty-one years ago. He was educated at the military school at Yorkville, S.C. He lived for a number of years in the towns of Monroe and Charlotte, but has been living in Matthews for the past twenty-five years. As a neighbor, Mr. Heath was kind and obliging and the poor and needy were never turned away empty handed. He was a most devoted and indulgent husband and father, and was never happier than when in his home surrounded by all of his children. He will be sadly missed in the town and the entire community.

The funeral services by his pastor, Rev. L.P. Boyd, will be conducted from the home tomorrow at 10 a.m. and the body will be taken to Charlotte and laid to rest at 2 p.m. in Elmwood cemetery.

Mr. Heath is survived by a wife and nine children. They are Mrs. C.P. Bivens, Mrs. B.A. Redfern of Monroe, Mr. Henry, Paul, Etta, Norma, Annie and E.J. Heath, Jr. He also leaves four brothers, Messrs. B.D. and O.P. Heath of Charlotte. Dr. M.C. Heath of Richmond, Ky., and J.P. Heath of Camilia, Ga.

Large Crowd of Sorrowing Friends Attend the Service at Matthews and Interment Here.
The funeral services over the remains of Mr. Everett Jefferson Heath was held at his late residence in Matthews yesterday morning at 10 o'clock and was conducted by Rev. L.P. Bogle, his pastor and Rev. C.F. Sherrill of Waxhaw, a former pastor.

The bank of Matthews, the graded schools and all the business institutions of the town suspended in honor of the much-respected townsman. Matthews has never witnessed a larger funeral cortege, parties coming from the country adjacent and many nearby towns, Charlotte, Waxhaw, Monroe and other towns were represented by large delegations of sympathizing friends.

The remains were brought to Charlotte on the Seaboard train and the interment was made at Elmwood by the side of three of his deceased children, Ruth, Wilson, and Annie Heath. The floral designs were numberous and beautiful.

Mr. Heath was in many respects a great man. To the poor he was always kind, attentive and helpful, having done numerous deeds of kindness that were withheld from public notice. His loss is mourned by a multitude who have been remembered by him in times of their need.
