Death of an Old Citizen.
This morning the sad announcement was heralded among the friends of Dr. C. C.
Gillespie that he was dying, and at 11 o'clock, he passed away to rest in his
final home. Dr. Gillespie has been sick with flux for several days, but not
until yesterday was he considered dangerous. The Dr. was 65 years old on the
22nd day of last August, a native of Alabama, and for many years, a resident of
Dallas. He was an upright man, a Mason and highly esteemed by all who knew him.
The funeral will take place from the residence of Mr. C. B. Gillespie at Oak
Lawn tomorrow morning, burial at Farmers Branch, in the family burial ground.
His daughter, Miss Willie, will come in to-night from Baird.
