Years Illness Terminates in
Death of Bennett Treeweeke
Who Has Lived in Augusta
For 55 Years

Bennette James Treeweeke, well known pioneer resident of Augusta died at his home at 241 Main street at 2:30 o'clock this morning. Mr. Treeweeke had been ill for nearly a year with pernicious anemia. He was 60 years old.

Mr. Treeweeke has lived near and in the city of Augusta for the last fifty five years. He was born in Waukegan, Ill., the son of Mrs. and Mr. William Treeweeke, February 16, 1865. He was one of a family of twelve children.

In 1870 Mr. Treeweeke came with his parents to Augusta. They resided for a time on a farm southwest of town and moved later to the well known Treeweeke farm two miles southeast of town on which the Magnolia Oil company now has operations.

On November 29, 1900, he was married to Miss Mary Alexander of Augusta, who is also well known among Augustans, and who was at one time a teacher in the Augusta schools.

The deceased was affiliated with no church, but has always been an attendant to the Methodist congregation, of which his wife was a member.

He was engaged in farming the greater part of his life. For the last eight years he has been employed by the city of Augusta.

Mr. Treeweeke is survived by his wife and two daughters, Elizabeth and Harriett, one son, Marion, two
brothers, R.A. Treeweeke of Augusta, and J.L. Treeweeke of Wichita, and two sisters, Mrs. Jennie Liens and Mrs. Ella Melrose.

Mr. Treeweeke's failing had been gradual for nearly a year. He had a sinking spell on last Friday, but on Sunday had rallied and had seemed stronger until yesterday afternoon when a gradual decline set in that terminated in his death.

Funeral services will be held at the home on Main street tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock. The funeral sermon will be made by J.C. Fisher, pastor of the Methodist church.
