Elberton Star
Thursday October 24, 1901

Again has the black winged angel of death hovered over Elbert County and taken from her one of the best and most prominent citizens in her borders. Suddenly, swiftly and without a moment's warning, the fates cut the thread of Hon C. M. Seymour's life, robbing Elbert of a citizen she can ill afford to lose. He died on last Thursday morning from apoplexy or paralysis of the heart, a short distance from his home, while attending to some business with one of his negro tenants. He lived only a few minutes after being stricken.

Born from humble and honest parentage without the many advantages that a great many young men have had to start life with, he became one of the most successful men Elbert has ever produced and when he died had amassed a considerable fortune. He was born only a half mile from when he lived when he died. He was born August 12, 1841 and was sixty years old at his death. In 1867 he was married to Miss Lockie Ann Phelps, a noble and true woman who survives him at the age of fifty-three. Only one living child is the result of their marriage, Mrs. Charles Allan. He was a Confederate soldier and was always on the side of truth and morality. He was not one of your sugar-coated goody sort of people, but a plain straightforward right-doing sort of man. Mr. Seymour was buried last Saturday at Antioch Church with Masonic honors. The funeral services were conducted by Revs Phillip W Davis and W T Norman.
