Captain L.Y. Dean, of Eufaula, died at his home in that place Thursday and
was laid to rest the following day in the cemetery of Eufaula.  In speaking
of Captain Dean, the Eufaula Tribune said:

News of Captain Dean's death came as a shock to the city.  For weeks he had
been in declining health but was able to be a his place of business only a
few days ago.

Captain Dean, who was nearing his 90th birthday, was a native of Edgefield,
S.C. and entered the Confederate army when he was 16 years of age.  He
served throughout the war, rising from the ranks to become a captain.  He
lost an arm in the fighting in Virginia and after recovering returned to his
command, serving until the close of hostilities.

Soon after the close of the war he came to Eufaula to enter the insurance
business in which he was active until a few months ago.

Captain Dean was the senior elder of the First Presbyterian church and was
one of the church's most devoted members.  He is survived by the following
children:  L. Y. Dean, Jr., Mrs.. T. L. Moore, and Mrs.. Lula Rees, all of
Eufaula; Mrs. F. T. Bakewell of Macon, Ga. and Mrs. J. W. Moody of Buffalo,
