John W. Slade Died Yesterday
John Wesley Slade, for many years a prominent figure in the affairs of Caswell County and recently an esteemed citizen of Danville passed quitely out of this life yesterday at 12:45 p.m. at his home on South Main Street. He had been in ill health for more than a year and was confined to his bed most of the time for the past ten months. A great sufferer, he endured patiently and uncomplainingly his long illness.
Mr. Slade, the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Tabor Slade, was born at Purley, N.C., Feb. 11, 1848. All of his life except the last three years he spent in his native county. He acquired a large tract of land and was a progressive and successful farmer. He was also the servant of his county in many ways and gave freely of his time and energies to promote her interests.
Early in life he affiliated with Purley Methodist Church and was during his residence in Caswell an active worker in his church. After moving to Danville he and his family identified themselves with Mount Vernon Church.
On Dec. 18, 1874, Mr. Slade married Miss Alice Hodges, daughter of the late Wm. H. Hodges of Caswell. For nearly a half century the couple shared each other's losses and achievements and made for their children a home known to friends and neighbors for its kindness and gracious hospitality. The widow and the following children survive and deeply lament the passing of this good man: W. T. Slade, J. T. Slade, Mrs. Florine Foster and Mrs. Harry E. Jones, all of Danville; Mrs. T. J. Henderson and Mrs. J. F. Hodges of Yanceyville; Kemper Slade of Richmond, Va.; Mrs. S. J. Woods of Haskell, N.J.; I H. Slade and H. C. Slade, of Blanch, N.C.
The funeral services will be held from the residence this afternoon at 4 o'clock by the Rev. J. Callaway Robertson, pastor of Mount Vernon Church. The body will be taken to Purley Church and laid away in the family lot at that place.
