Rev. E.D. Gregory, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of this city died near San Antonio, Texas, on the night of the 3rd. His remains were brought to this city and interred Sunday afternoon in Oak Grove cemetery.
Mr. Gregory came to the city almost two years ago in response to a call to the Pastorate of the First Presbyterian church. Something less than a year ago he was married to Miss Emily B. Farrow, of this city. Shortly afterward a disease of pulmonary nature making its appearance in hi system, he went to Southern Texas where he remained until the time of his death, vainly endeavoring to regain his health.
