    • "W. B. McNeill Is Claimed By Death
      Prominent Purlear Citizen Died Sunday; Funeral Held Tuesday

      W. B. McNeill, prominent farmer of the Purlear community, died Sunday night following a serious [i]llness of about three weeks. He had been in poor health, however, for some time.

      Mr. McNeill was born on February 11, 1876, and was, therefore, 57 years of age. He was a son of the late Tom McNeill and Jane Nichols McNeill.

      A member of New Hope Baptist church, Mr. McNeill was a faithful church worker and always took an active part in church activities. He was a member of the New Hope Council, J. O. U. A. M. He had a host of friends in the county and elsewhere who were saddened to learn of his death.

      The funeral service which was largely attended was held at Arbor Grove Methodist church Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock. Rev. Finley C. Watts, Rev. Avery Church and Rev. E. P. Greene conducted the service.

      After the service the body was interred in the church cemetery with other members of the family who are buried there.

      Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Lou McNeill, and eight children: M. B. McNeill, of this city; Mrs. W. E. Phelps, of Winston-Salem; Charles, Woodrow, John, Annie, Sue and Sallie McNeill, of Purlear. Two sisters, Mrs. O. F. Eller and Mrs. L. Bumgarner, of Wilkesboro, and one brother, Arthur McNeill, of Lenoir, also survive."
