T. S. Harrison Well-Known Man of Blanche, Dies

New was received here today of the death last night at 11:25 o'clock of Thomas Satterwhite Harrison, lifelong and prominent resident of Blanche, N. C. Mr. Harrison, who is 85 years old, had been bed-ridden for about eight weeks from infirmities of age, but several days ago contracted bronchial pneumonia, which hastened his death.

Mr. Harrison was widely known and esteemed in Caswell county. He served as justice of the peace for 52 consecutive years, probably establishing a record in years of service as an officeholder. He also served two terms in the state legislature and was a Mason and confederate veteran.

Besides his sister, Mrs. Cora Slade, of Yanceyville, Mr. Harrison is survived by the following children: Will Harrison, Havanna, Cuba; Robert L. Harrison and and John P. Harrison, of Blanche, N. C.; I. D. Harrison, of Norfolk; Miss Annie Harrison, Danville; Mrs. James Murray, Danville; Miss Dora Harrison, Blanche; Mrs. W. T. Lea, Blanche; Lieut. Duval Duckett, United States Navy, San Diego; Mrs. W. K. Webster, Washington, D. C., and Miss Lillie Harrison, of California.

The funeral will be held from Harrison's old church, near the residence, Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock. He will be buried with Masonic honors.
