Another Landmark of Mecklenburg is at Rest-A Man Known by All the County.

Captain William B. Caldwell died last evening at 6:40 o'clock, at the residence of his son, Mr. John S. Caldwell, at Huntersville. He had been confined to his bed for over a year and his death was not unexpected. He was 81 years old.

Capt. Caldwell, better known everywhere in this county as "Big Billie" Caldwell, was born at Croft, this county, and lived there until three or four years ago, when he moved to Huntersville, where he made his home with his son. He was a farmer and a man of means, and was known and esteemed by practically everybody in the county. He was straightforward and honorable and had many friends. He was a member of the Hopewell Presbyterian church and had been an elder in that church for many years.

Captain Caldwell was twice married. There were no children of the first marriage. The second wife was a Miss Turbiville, of Mooresville, who died eight or ten years ago. Children surviving this marriage are: Mrs. George P. Woodruff, Mrs. W.P. Dixon, Mrs. L.D. Whitsett and Miss Sallie Caldwell, of Charlotte; Mr. John S. Caldwell, of Huntersville; Mr. Thomas Caldwell, of Savannah, Ga., and Mr. William B. Caldwell, Jr., of Croft. Many grand children survive.

The funeral services will be conducted at the Second Presbyterian church this afternoon, and the interment will take place at Elmwood cemetery, by the side of the wife of the deceased.
