Joel T. Eaddy Buried on Eve of Wedding Day

Christmas brought sadness instead of joy to a certain young lady of Florence county as she laid aside her white wedding dress for one of somber black.
Joel T. Eaddy the expected bridegroom was found dead in an overturned automobile near Pamplico Wednesday night and laid to rest in old Lee Cemetery near Johnsonville on Christmas Eve and on the eve of the day set for his wedding.
Joel was only 23 years of age at the time of his tragic death and those who knew him best were earnest in their praise of his many sterling qualities.
He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Eaddy of Johnsonville. Three brothers and three sisters also survive, and are as follows. Dewey, David, and John Wesley Eaddy, Mrs. Hilma Holland, Mrs. Theodosia Hyman and Miss Jowindel Eaddy. They with the heartbroken bride-to-be and a host of friends mourned his passing.
