(no year given)
Allendale, S.C. Sept. 1

"Capt. Henry C. Raysor, one of the oldest citizens of Allendale, and one of its prominent landmarks, died suddenly at the home of his only daughter, Mrs. C.M. Hires, of Augusta, Ga. on Monday, August 18. Capt. Raysor was eighty-four years of age and led an active life up to the time of his death. He was a Confederate soldier and officer and distinguished himself during his four years' service in the War Between the States.

As a citizen he was held in the highest esteem and during his useful life held responsible public offices. His wife, who survives him, was Mrs. Oliver, of Charleston.

His remains were interred in Swallow Savannah Cemetery, near Allendale, his friends and neighbors attending to pay the last tribute of respect. He was a devoted member of the Presbyterian Church. A widow, (a) brother, of Ocala, Fla., one sister, Mrs. A.Q. Hires, of Allendale, and one daughter, Mrs. (C.M.)Hires, of Augusta, Ga., survive him."
