Aged Indian Doctor in Northern Part of Marlboro County
Dr. Jessie S. Haire died at his home in Smithville township, near the state line, last Friday, of jaundice. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. Franklin Quick at Marks Creek church Saturday.
Dr. Haire was 86 years of age according to James McArthur, who took the census in that township in April 1910 when Dr. Haire gave
his age as 84.
Dr. Haire was known as an Indian doctor and had an extensive practice in the sand hill section on both sides of the state line,
and is said to have cured many ailments that were given up by other physicians. In his latter years he had associated with him his
son Haas, in the practice of medicine and the operation of a drug store, under the firm name of Dr. J.S. Haire and Son.
Dr. Haire was a well read man and an interesting character.-Pee Dee Advocate

Marks Creek Church
An interesting series of meetings were closed at Marks Creek Presbyterian Church on Friday, Aug 20, resulting eleven accessions
to the membership. The pastor, Rev. W.R. Coppedge, was assisted by Rev. H.M. Pressly, of Charlotte. Bro. pressly's preaching was earnest,
evangelical and instructive. Though in his 75th year, he speaks with animation, and his sermons left impressions that will bring forth
fruit for many years. The church seems to have been greatly strengthened by this series of services.
