Webb Teague, Aged 70 years, and life time citizen of community found dead in bed.

Mr. Webb Teague, aged 71 years, and a well known life-time citizen of the Pee Dee community, was found dead n bed at the home of James Teague, one of his sons, Tuesday morning Oct. 14th. Monday evening he is said to have eaten a hearty supper and retired that night without complaint. His death is thought to have been due to high blood pressure. Remains were laid to rest Tuesday morning at the Pee Dee graveyard beside those of his wife, Jane McCormac Teague, whose death occurred six years since.

Mr. Teague was born and spent his life within six miles of where he died, his father, William Teague and a native of Tennessee, being a pioneer settler of that community. Since the death of his wife, or, here of late, at least, he has made his home with his only daughter, Mrs. Bill Morrison. Sunday afternoon he went to spend a few days with the family of his son where his death occurred. Besides the son and daughter mentioned he is survived by four other sons, namely, William, John, Mont and Fount.
