S. L. Holmes

The Gazette
October 27, 1897

It is with deep regret that we chronicle the death of Mr. S. L. Holmes, which sad event occurred at his residence in Calhoun last Saturday. For many years the deceased was a resident of Union Parish, where he has many friends. He moved to Calhoun last year. His remains were interred in the Mt. Ararat cemetery Sunday afternoon with Masonic honors, representatives of three lodges being present. The large crown of sorrowing friends at the funeral attested Mr. Holmes’ general popularity and worth.
