Mr. Lewis W. Saxon, aged 79, one of Oconee's best known citizens, died Saturday night at 10 o'clock, following a week's illness of pneumonia. While feeble because of age, Mr. Saxon until a week before death was up and around the house attending to his usual duties. Always active, Attending (sic) strictly to his own affairs, quiet, unassuming in his nature, he numbered his friends by his acquaintances and his community and county will sadly miss his presence.

Greaves, of Salem; L.E. Saxon, Farmington; Mrs. J.L. Thrasher, Union Point; Misses Essie and Estelle Saxon; a brother, Mr. H.M. Saron (sic), of Oconee, and Mrs. Harriet Reynolds of Newnan.
