Well Known Citizen of Near Blaney Expired Suddenly Saturday James A. Grigsby, well known farmer of upper Richland was found dead in the barn lot of his home Saturday morning by his grandson, Bryan Grigsby. Medical aide was quickly summoned but life seemed to have been extinct when the body was found, death having come apparently without warning. Mr Grigsby, who was 82 years of age, was twice married; his first wife, Miss Lottie Reeves of Lancaster,having died 32 years ago. His second wife, who was Miss Annie Baxter of upper Richland survives as do the following daughters and sons: Mrs John Amos, Columbia, Mrs Paul Hemmings and Mrs Max Lowe of Wellborn FL, Mrs John Kelly of Blaney, J. T. Grigsby of Columbia, Dr. W. D. Grigsby, Blaney and J.M. Grigsby of Richland county. Mr Grigsby was a Confederate veteran and for years had held a prominent place in the various activities of this section. He was widely known and the announcement of his death will bring sorrow to his many friends. The above is from the Columbia State of Sunday morning. While Mr Grigsby resided on the line of Kershaw and Richland, he voted and claimed Kershaw county as his residence. He lived in the Harmony section about 6 miles northwest of Blaney. Mr Grigsby was at one time county school commissioner, before the office was changed to superintendent of education. He had also held other offices of trust in his county and always took an active part in politics. He was well known and highly respected. Besides his relatives named above he is survived by two half brothers in Camden, Messrs. R. B. Williams and R.D. Williams. The funeral and burial was held at Smyrna Methodist church Sunday afternoon and was largely attended, many being present from Camden.
