Eugene Duval "Major"

Paulding New Era
23 Aug 1883
Transcribed by: 

Died, at Villa Rica, last Saturday morning, suddenly, of some kidney disease, Eugene Duval, familiarly known in Dallas as “Major.” 

The old Major was a native of France, had served in her armies in the “lang syne,” had traveled extensively through the old and the new world.  His observation was acute; his research and learning quite liberal.  Genial by nature and urban in manners, characteristic of his nationality. 

Major was engaged with Rev. J.R.T. Brown in the tin and house furnishing business here for awhile, and lately at Villa Rica.  The tin roof of the New Era and drug store building was placed by the Major. 

He has relatives in Charleston, S.C. 

The Major was neatly placed away by friends.
