D. L. English - personal

D. L. English has purchased a part of the W. H. Hume land adjoining Hays park and intends building soon.  We don't know what he portends.  Len says his sisters are going to live him, but as he is young and good looking we feel a little dubious.

Elmina Pickelsimer Obituary

Mrs. Elmina A. Pickelsimer, beloved wife of R. J. Pickelsimer, one of Brevard's oldest and best known merchants, died at her home in Brevard on Saturday morning last, aged 48 years.  Mrs. Pickelsimer was the daughter of Pearson and Penelope Merrell, and was born and lived many of her married life in the Grange section.  She was a member of Little River Baptist church where her remains were taken on Wednesday for burial.  She was a loving mother, and there was no sadder home in Transylvania last Sunday than the one over which she had presided for so many years.  A husband and seven children are left to mourn their great loss.  Short funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Wednesday morning conducted by Rev. I. T. Newton and Rev. C. P. Moore.  Burial was in Little River cemetery.  Pallbearers were J. W. McMinn, Des Young, Len English, Walter Orr, Nat McMinn and W. E. Breese.
