Obituary of F. W. Ahlday, Wharton, Texas.

F. W. Ahlday died at Wharton, Tex., on February 3, 1920 at the age of seventy-nine years. He was a gallant Confederate soldier, enlisting among the first in Company I, 4th Texas Cavalry, Riley's Regiment, Tom Green's brigade. He removed to Wharton, Tex., in 1869 and engaged in the mercantile business, and for many years was the leading merchant of the city. He held the office of county treasurer for twelve years, and was county commissioner for twelve years, voluntarily retiring from both offices. He was a neighbor and friend of mine for forty-five years, and I know he always had and maintained the respect and confidence of every one who knew him. He is survived by his second wife and a son of the first marriage. [W. J. Croom.]
