                                        C. M. CAMPBELL
After an illness of two weeks with malaria fever and complications of diseases, Mr. C. M. Campbell passed  peacefully to his reward at his late Dry Hill home  early Friday morning.  Up until a few days before his  demise there was great  hope  of his recovery but as  he grew worse toward the middle of last week, all his  children were summoned and were at his bedside  when the end came.
 Mr. Campbell was born in Chatam County, North  Carolina on Nov. 4, 1848 and came to Tennessee when a  boy;  later removing to Texas where he  resided several years.  But, the desire for good old Tennessee was so strong that he moved back some 35   years ago and resided in Lauderdale County since.    He was a good farmer, a splendid citizen, kind  neighbor and loving husband and father.  He married  Mildred Saunders 55 years ago and to this union were  born ten children, eight of whom survive. They  are, Mrs.  Julian Sutton, Mrs. E.C. Owen, Will  Campbell, Mrs  W.C. Deloch, Mrs. Will Hartman,   E.C. Campbell, Mrs. W.T. Green and Miss Bruce Campbell.  Mr. Campbell had 25 grandchildren and five  great-grandchildren.

 He was a member of the Church of Christ of Curve  and the funeral was held there Saturday by his
 pastor Dr. L. R. Harding of Henning.  Internment   was at Gates.  Pallbearers were H. M. Suttton, Julian Sutton, Jr., C.W. Sutton, Richard Owen and William Campbell
                                         Mrs. C. M. Campbell dies

 The sudden death of Mrs. Campbell in Memphis on December 23rd was a shock to her loved ones and friends in Lauderdale County.  She was the widow of the late C.M.  Campbell of Dry Hill and it was in this county that she spent the greater portion of her long life.   It was not until the death of her husband some three years ago that she moved to Memphis.  She was a Virginian by birth and  was only one year old when she came with her parents to Tennessee from Virginia.  Her maiden  name was Mildred  Saunders  and of her immediate Family only  two sisters are living, Mrs. John Moore and   Mrs. Eva King of San Antonio. (Texas)   On May 4, 1873, she was married to Mr. Campbell and 8  children  survive this union:  Mrs. Julian  Sutton and Mrs. E.C. Owen of Curve, Will Campbell, Mrs. W. C. Delouch of Ripley, Mrs. Will Hartman of Gates,  E.C. Campbell, Mrs. W. T.Green and Miss Bruce Campbell of Memphis.

The remains were brought to the home of her  daughter in Gates on Wednesday and the following day, Christmas Eve, were laid to  rest in the cemetery at that place.  The  funeral, however, was held in the Curve  Church of Christ of which she had been a faithful member for a quarter century.  Her  pastor, Dr. L.K. Harding conducted the  services in the presence of relatives and friends.  The loving esteem in which the  deceased was held and the purity of the sweet  life now closed was also typified  in the profusion of lovely floral offerings.  Her four score years had not  been lived in  vain for all who knew her  loved her and  made better for having come in contact with a  life so beautiful, one which had brought so  much joy and happiness into the world.  Long will the memory of her kind affectionate disposition, gentle words  and and loving ministrations live in the hearts of her  children and those made richer and purer by the influence of her consecrated Christian faith.
