   Covington, 915 Green street, last night, after a decline in health lasting for five years or more. Mr. Covington had been failing steadily, after being an invalid for

   the last two years, and his death was not unanticipated.

  

   Mr. Covington was born in Halifax county, being a son of the late Edward Green Covington and Mrs. Annie Roberts Covington. His early life was spent in

   Halifax, but in young manhood he moved to Caswell county and for more than thirty-five years was engaged in farming in the vicinity of Yanceyville. During his

   life there he established many warm friendships and he was generally esteemed and respected. His church membership was first with the Providence Baptist

   church between Danville and Yanceyville, but in later years he transferred his membership to Yanceyville, maintaining, however a keen interest in the

   Providence church.

  

   He retired from active pursuits when ill health became apparent and three years ago he came to this city to live with his children. Forty-seven years ago he was

    married to Miss Montgomery. Together they reared a large family. Mr. Covington leaves, besides his widow, ten children as follows:

  

   W. E. Covington and B. R. Covington of Danville; C. C. Covington, of Blanche, N. C.; C. D. Covington, of Danville; H. S. Covington, of Washington; R. L.

   Covington, of Bluefield, West Va.; Mrs. E. P. Snead, Blanche, N. C.; Mrs. E. W. Oakley, Danville; Mrs. W. R. Bradley,of Groveland, Fla.; and Mrs. S. L. Hodnett,

    of Groveland. (note these names do not tie up with other records of his offspring or the 1900 Census for Yanceyville, Caswell NC))

  

   The funeral will be held at 12:30 o'clock from the home on Green street, Sunday afternoon, by Rev. C. J. Parker. The remains will be taken to near Yanceyville

   for interment."
