After forty or more years of feeble health and a long period of painful illness, Mr. Peter B. Baughn (Uncle Peter as we all knew him) peacefully passed away at the home of his brother, Mr. Joe S. Baughn, at Chapel Church, Friday evening at two o’clock. The passing away of this good man brings sorrow to the entire community and county. His life, with exception of a few years, had been spent among us.

He was a devout Christian, almost a life long member of the Baptist church. He was in his sixty-ninth year. He had reared a family of noble children in our midst but all of them together with the mother was waiting on the other shore for the fond father and husband. He leaves one brother and four sisters to mourn. His remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground at his old home Saturday evening.
