[Note: Macon County researchers will sorely miss the contributions to geneology that Guelda, with the assistance of Millie Stewart, has made to both Macon County and Taylor County. She lived with and knew so many of the people that today's geneologist are searching for. Her memory of people, places, dates and happenings was REMARKABLE. She was instrumental in helping to get "They Tarried In Taylor" in print. Mrs. Essie Childs had all of the records but had never made the final step to get them in print and to fellow researchers.
Guelda trudged every step of the way to record both the "Cemeteries of Taylor County" and "Cemeteries of Macon County" It was her knowledge of the territory that enabled these books to be completed. She didn't do the tape recording or the typing or the printing but enabled it to be accomplished.
We will miss you Guelda.

DEATH CLAIMS MR. HUFFMAN

On Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock Mr. Mack Huffman, after a few days of illness, passed away at his home near Oglethorpe.
Though his exact age is not known, it was between 95
and 100, and he had been blessed with exceedingly good health up until this illness.
Uncle Mack as he was known to quite a few of his friends was a good Christian man and set a good example for his family and friends to follow. If he was troubled he took it to the Lord in prayer where he was sure to find consolation, for he loved the Lord and his church and lived accordingly.
Though he will be greatly missed by his family and friends, we feel sure he is at rest.
Rev. Sanders conducted the funeral service in the home and he was laid to rest in the Shealy cemetery there to await the Resurrection Morning when he will arise to meet his Savior and the life he has led caused us to believe that he can meet him with a smiling face and feel no fear or dread.
Mr. Huffman was a member of the Lutheran Church and had lived in Macon County for a number of years where he was loved and respected by all who knew him.
He fought in the civil war and was proud of his cross of honor.
He leaves a wife Mrs. Annie (Shealy) Huffman. one son
and two daughters Wil Huffman and Mrs. Annie Pennington of Oglethorpe and Mrs. Luther Wicker of Williston, Fla. and a nephew Wick Hancock, a sister, Mrs. Sallie Brooks of Ideal and a host of friends to mourn his death.
[Note: Martin L. Huffman was a son of Sarah and Samuel
Huffman. Sarah was in 1860 census 58 yrs old. She & her
body heirs by Samuel Huffman bought 100 acres of land in 1853 in Lot 129/2nd Dist. Orig. Muscogee, Now Macon Co., Ga.]

This one is unknown as to the deceased.

LT. WILLIAM DIXON HARP, JR.

Lt. W. D. Harp, Jr. Loses Life In South Pacific.

Added to the growing list of Macon County young men who have made the supreme sacrifice in World War II is the name of 21 year old Lt. William D. Harp, Jr., son and only child of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Harp of Garden Valley, news of whose death on Okinawa June 15th came last Thursday through a War Department telegram. The message was addressed to Mrs. Harp, Jr, the former Miss Peggy Barbre, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Beall Barbre of Albany, who is making her home with her parents. The last letter received by mermbers of the family from the young lieutenant had been dated June 10th.

Reared in Macon County, Lt. Harp graduated from Oglethorpe High School. Popular with all his classmates, he took part in school activities and played with the basketball team. Graduating from Georgia Military College at Milledgeville, he entered the University of Georgia at Athens and was in his senior year and president of his fraternity, ATO, when he left to enter the infantry officers school at Fort Benning.

After receiving his commission, he was stationed for a time at a camp in Texas, his young bride, whom he had married July 29, 1944, joining him there. He left for the South Pacific in January of this year, stopping in Hawaii en route. He was wounded in the first engagement on Okinawa, being one of 43 members of his battalion left alive after the initial landing. Hospitalized at Saipan for a head wound and shrapnel in his back, he recovered and was given a brief rest in a convalescent camp. His family are awaiting further details of the battle in which their son lost his life.
