Mrs. Millican Dies

Oconee has lost another good lady, Mrs. Mary Ann Milican (sic). Aunt Sug, as she was called, was born in Oconee, July 27, 1850, dying May 11, 1927, making her stay on earth 76 years 11 months and 14 days. She was loved by all who knew her, for she always had a good word and a sweet smile for all whom she came in contact with. In youth she united with Rays M E church, of which she was a member until death. At the age of 24 she married Mr. Arch Millican, several children blessing the union, six of whom survive her, Mess. Tom and Earl Millican of Oconee; Mr. Joe Millican of Alabama, Mr. Jack Millican of Atlanta, and Mrs. Kate Slaton of Putnam county, 20 grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Millican had been in failing health a good many years but there was nothing left undone for her comfort in her remaining years and when that was done all was done that was required to do. She had made her home with her son, Mr. Earl Millican since her husband's death several years ago, and he and his good wife were faithful to her to the end. Besides her children she is survived by one sister, Mrs. John Wortham, of Monroe, and a host of friends.

She was laid to rest at Rays cemetery on the 12th, the services being conducted by her pastor, Rev. W F Lunsford.

She is gone but not forgotten
By her friends on earth below;
For some day we hope to meet her
On the other golden shore.
The golden gater were opened wide
And gentle voice said, Come!
And angels on the other shore
Gave her a welcome home
