After months of suffering from cancer of the stomach, Mr. W. J. Fleeman, one of the best known and most highly esteemed citizens of the county, breathed his last at his home near Beaverdam church Friday night last. He was born and had lived all the sixty five years of his life in our county and in the community in which he died. His life had been well spent. It was during the war between the states that he exhibited his manhood. Serving under the lamented Stonewall Jackson he was ever in the front rank, notably in the Valley campaign. He was all the time in the greatest danger but came out without a wound but with the plaudits of his officers. He was a pillar in his church and held in high esteem by his denomination. A very large congregation assembled Sunday morning at Beaverdam Church and heard eulogies from Elber M. J. O’Kelly and Rev. P. W. Davis on his Christian character. He leaves a widow and three children, Messrs. J. C. and C. G. Fleeman and Mrs. W. T. Lester.
