- The following appeared on 4 November 1915 in The Messenger and Intelligencer: (McFarlan) Mrs. James W. Pegues died last Sunday morning about 8 o'clock after several weeks of heart disease. Mrs. Peguese before her marriage was Miss Carrie Pegues, daughter of the late Rev. Wesley L. Pegues of Marlboro County, S. C. She was born January 31, 1847 in Marlboro Co., where she was reared and was a graduate of the Methodist College for Women at Spartanburg, S. C. She was married to James W. Pegues in the year of 1871 and is survived by her husband and the following brothers and one sister, Miss Jennie O. Pegues of Kollock, S. C., and brothers being Prof. Ship S. Pegues, of Georgetown, Texas, and Mr. Walter Pegues, of Cheraw and Mr. Frank Pegues of Darlington, S. C., also a number of other near relatives in Marlboro county and Cheraw. Mrs. Pegues was a member of Pleasant Hill church and until her physical strength failed her she was very active in Sunday school work, and all other church work, being a faithful member of the Ladies' Aid Society. She was a woman of practical judgment and her conduct of church affairs were superb. She had a wide influence and as we recall her gentle, familiar face and voice full of faith and strength our hearts ache over the thought of never again, in the life of enjoying the pleasure of sweet intercourse with her, but we know that she is still a guiding star, only brighter. Her influence will ever live among us. The interment was at New Hope church, her old home church. The floral tribute was very beautiful. The entire community extend their deepest sympathy to the bereaved husband and entire family connection, may God comfort them in their sore bereavement.
