ZACK DUMAS CEMETERY
Surveyed by Woodford Sherrill and Jack Ingram
If approaching the stop light in Ellerbe from the south on #220, that you should make a left turn 
at the stop light. (If coming from north, make right turn) Follow the road, without making turns,  
all the way to #109 at Mangum. Turn left on #109, and go about one mile. Look on left and will see 
chicken houses on hillside. A little distance further on beyond the chicken houses, there will be 
an open field on the right. In that field will be a growth of bushes, vines, and trees that marks 
the location of the cemetery.

*Shocking Murder.-We learn that a murder was committed in Anson County last week; a dispute arose between a man by the name of 
Obediah Dumas, or Richmond County, and one William Newton, when the latter inflicted five wounds upon Mr. Dumas with a knife, 
who survived but about two hours. Newton had been arrested and commited to Anson Jail to await his trial.

Died, of a very lingering disease, at his residence in Richmond County, on the 14th instant, Mr. Benjamin Dumas, aged 70 
yrs and 4 mos. In the death of this excellent man, his affectionate wife and children have suffered a sorely distressing 
bereavement. For many years Mr. D. had lived where he died; had brought up by the aid of his devoted wife, a large family 
of children, the most of whom he had the pleasure to see settled and succeeding well in the world, before he died. That he 
might witness the prosperity and welfare of his family, was about all, I believe, for which Mr. D. desired to live longer; 
if, indeed, he did desire it. (addit.) Fayett. Obs., Jan. 01, 1840  (Bridges - Jul. 31, 2016)

**Died in Richmond County, N.C., on Saturday the 17th inst., Mr. Zachariah Dumas, in his 70th year.-Death upon this occasion has 
done his work upon hoary age, and the deceased, after emphatically serving his age and generation, is "gathered to his fahters."  
We are not again to look upon the like of Mr. Zachariah Dumas. He was the last of those time-honored and early settlers of this 
part of the Pee Dee country. He was a man of sterling integrity and worth, combining firmness of character with great kindness of 
heart; distinguished for his liberality, sociability, and hospitality. Few men have lived and died in this community more universally 
and deservedly respected. In boyhood and youth and manhood, living and dying, he has enjoyed the confidence and affectionate regard of 
all who have ever become acquainted with him. Could cympathy and tears and prayers have kept him in our midst, he had not fallen. 
We desire to bow submissivly to the blow which crushes and overwhelms our spirits. God's will be done.
