Rebecca WRIGHT McVEIGH Obituary

This is the obituary of my great-grandmother.

Florence Morning News, Monday, July 18, 1932, page 4, column 8, transcribed by Teresa McVeigh 1 Nov 2009:


Mrs. Rebecca Wright McVeigh, widow of the late James L. McVeigh, died at her home in Waynesville, Ga., Brantley County, Friday morning July 8th in her 64th year. Mrs. McVeigh was born in Cumberland county, North Carolina, the daughter of Henry J Wright and Mary Shaw Wright. She moved to Georgia in her youth and has lived practically all of her life in South Georgia, where by her splendid qualities of character, she endeared herself to numberless friends. Mrs. McVeigh is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Scotia Harrison, Waynesville, Ga., Mrs. Leo Johnson, Florence, S.C., and Mrs. Isaiah Gibson of Waynesville, Ga.; four sons, Henry, Norman, and Leland McVeigh, Waynesville, Ga., and John McVeigh of Florence, S. C. Funeral services were conducted at the Highsmith Cemetery by Rev. R. F. Owen, pastor of the local Methodist church of which Mrs. McVeigh was a member. Mr. Owen was assisted by Rev. Milton McCool of Hoboken, and Rev. O. E. Graves of Waynesville. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful.
