Dr. Benjamin P. Estes, late of McKinney, passed from this life at 4 o'clock P.M., July 21. He was born in the autumn of 1831, in Bridgeport, this State, and moved to Middleburg in 1867, and has lived at his late residence near McKinney ever since. Deceased was converted at the early age of 17 and united with the Union Chapel Baptist church near his native town. He was married to Miss Sallie A. Jones in 1855, and she survives him. The doctor served in the late war as a union soldier for the term of three years and eight months. He enlisted as sargeant and was promoted to lieutenant-colonel. From 1858 to 1879 he was engaged in the practice of medicine and then gave up the work on account of failing health. During the last 12 years he has been a confirmed invalid and has been confined to his bed since Oct. 25, 1892. The deceased leaves to mourn his departure an affectionate wife and one daughter, Mrs. J. W. Givens, and a son, Dr. Ed Estes. After a brief and appropriate funeral service at the grave by pastor J. H. Julian, the mortal remains were laid to rest in the McKinney cemetery at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, to await the resurrection morn.
