Word was received here yesterday afternoon of the death that morning of Dan Morrow of Long Creek, following an illness of several days. Uncle Dan had been reported a day or two before as on the road to recovery, and his death came as a shock to his many acquaintances here. Mr. Morrow was the last surviving Civil War veteran in the county, and his death wipes out the last G.A.R. member in the county. He was 95 years of age and still retained a remarkably clear and active mind. No information was received up to the time of going to press regarding funeral arrangements.
