News and Courier, Charleston, dated Oct. 25, 1895.
Mr. Thomas Hughes received a letter from a friend at Highlands, N.C., yesterday giving the particulars of the death of the REV. DR. R.S. TRAPIER.
DR. TRAPIER was being visited by his granddaughter from Philadelphia. He had been feeling a little badly for a couple of days, but on Tuesday felt much better and decided to take his granddaughter driving to see some of the sights of Highland. The party consisted of DR. TRAPIER, MISS TRAPIER, his daughter, MISS TRAPIER his granddaughter and a coachman. { Sorry no names given }.
Among the places visited was Cullasagia Falls. It was not possible for the carriage to go all the way to the falls so it was stopped and MR. TRAPIER and his daughter remained near it, while his granddaughter, attended by the coachman went to view the falls, being absent about half an hour.
Shortly after they had set out MISS TRAPIER noticed her father sitting on a fallen tree, was gasping for breath and she went to him. He fell in her arms. No one was in call and they had to wait for the return of the granddaughter and the coachman. Just as they arrived the old soldier of God drew his last breath, painlessly, silently and without a struggle.
The remains were carried to Walhalla by stage yesterday and will be taken to Georgetown today. A number of gentlemen will meet the remains at Lane's and go to Georgetown, where the funeral will be held in the Parish Church of Prince George, Winyah and all that is mortal of the venerable rector emeritus of St. Michael's be laid to rest in the vault with his ancestors.
[ this is not my family , hope someone will find interesting ].
