Mr. B. Crayte Sloan, Sr., 64 years of age, died at his home in Cassville at midnight Saturday after an illness of long duration. His suffering was intense but he fought valiantly for life and despite his affliction his strong will kept him up and about when a weaker spirit would have yielded.

Mr. Sloan was born in Fair Play, S.C., November 1, 1870. Thirty-one years ago he was married to Miss Nellie Smith, a sister of Mrs. C.H. Pittard of Cartersville. Mr. Sloan was a merchant by occupation and was active in community affairs and in the county. He was a devout member of the Baptist church and was a Mason.

Funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon at 2:30 from the Cassville Baptist church with Rev. Amos Cash, pastor, officiating. Mr. Cash was assisted by Rev. M.R. Gaddis. Interment was in Cassville cemetery and the pallbearers were Messrs. John R. Headden, Rob Headden, [illegible] Grier, W.S. Chunn, George W. Gaddis and J.D. Kimsey. Cummings Long Owens funeral directors had charge of the arrangements.

Mr. Sloan is survived by his wife, five daughters, Mrs. L.C. Crow, Jr., Misses Nelle, Louise and Carolyn Sloan, of Cassville, and Miss Emily Sloan of Atlanta, three sons, Messrs. Crayte, Jr. Bob and Jack Sloan, of Cassville, one brother Mr. A.L. Sloan of Atlanta, three sisters, Miss Hattie Sloan, Atlanta, Mrs. M.D. Jarman, Miami, Fla. and Mrs. W.S. Killey of Anniston, Ala.
