Mr. J. Y. Ferguson, one of Morgan County’s oldest and most highly respected citizens left last Friday for Anson, Texas, where he goes to make his future home with his children. His life here has been one of usefulness and honor. His departure is regretted very much by his host of friends. He came to Morgan County from South Carolina with his parents when he was six year old and lived here for sixty-eight years. He has been a member of the Forest Chapel Methodist church for thirty-four years and during that time he has been a class leader and steward. He was tax-collector of this county for six years and was also the Confederate tax-collector during the war. He is a bright Mason of twenty-nine years standing and has ben frequently honored by that Order. It is with deep regret that we chronicle the departure of such a useful citizen, but we hope that he will visit his old home and friend often.
