The subject of this notice, was a man of singular originality of character. Without much aid from what is called "book learning, by the simple force of good natural understanding, untiring industry and inextinguishable energy, and a Roman firmness of purpose, he succeeded in accumulating considerable property. After saying he amassed a large estate, it might look like an unreasonable demand upon the credulity of the public to add that he was a strictly honest man all the while; yet his neighbors, and those that knew him can best testify to the literal truth of this statement. As a husband and father he was kind & indulgent; as a master, reasonable and merciful; as neighbor, kind, cordial and hospitable; as a friend, when he professed to be such, as true as the sun. The strength of his character was as conspicuous on the couch of sickness as in the field of active life. He bore his painful and protracted illness with almost unexampled fortitude and resignation to the will of heaven. He sunk at length, amid such regrets and sympathies as spoken loudly "Behold he has taken on the affection of his family and the respect of his acquaintance A wit's a feather and a chief's a rod an honest man's the noblest work of God William McCargo - Jan 5, 1847, Page 4, Col 2 Died on the 18th of September, 1846 at 6 o'clock in the morning, in Granville, North Carolina, Colonel William McCargo, in the 53 year of his age. The deceased was a fine and charitable man, affording relief, wherever it was in his power to do so, to all who might need help. He started from Oxford N. C. on Monday morning, the 14th of December, and after traveling 15 miles, he was attacked, it was supposed, with apoplexy, and remained for several hours, on the cold ground, before he was found. Medical aid was obtained as soon as possible, but no relief could be given. The deceased was an affectionate husband and parent, leaving a wife, a child, many relatives and friends to mourn their loss William H. Callicott Sept 10, 1844, Page 3 Col 7 Died suddenly and unexpectedly while asleep at his residence in the county of Charlotte, on the morning of the eighteenth of August, William H. Callicott, during the convalescence from a tedious and distressing illness. He lived in comparative retirement from the world, but possessed some excellent traits of character, and by his industry and rigid habits of economy, had accumulated considerable property. Enq of Jan 18, 1855 At her home in Charlotte Co. Dec 10, 1854 Mrs. Elizabeth, consort of Littlejohn McCargo, age 62 years. Mrs. McCargo was a great sufferer some years before her death. Every effort was made for her recovery which a devoted husband could devised, aided by all the sympathy, wisdom and skill he could command. As a wife, mother, governess, neighbor and personal friend, her place will remain unfilled. ======================================== Charlotte Co Va - Registry of Deaths Pg 7 Mary Ann McCargo d.
