Harllee McCall

Obituary of Thomas H. Harllee, Sr., Florence, South Carolina.

A long and eventful life closed on the 6th of August with the passing of Thomas H. Harllee, Sr., of Florence, S. C., whose eighty-fifth year was completed on July 15. He was a prominent and honored citizen of Florence for many years, widely known throughout the Peedee section of the State.

Thomas H. Harllee was the son of Col. David S. Harllee and completed his education at the University of South Carolina. During the War between the States he served as quartermaster sergeant under Colonel Graham, of the 21st South Carolina Regiment, later being transferred to Georgetown to the division of heavy artillery; thence he went to the ordnance department under General Trapier, where he served until the close of the war. His record was that of faithfulness to duty at all times. After the war he engaged in farming until 1885, when he removed to Florence and was connected with the railroad service, later being connected with the city administration, and retired from active work about ten years ago. For a number of years he served as a memberof the board of trustees of the Methodist Church, of which he was a lifelong member.

Comrade Harllee was a man of attarctive personality and made and held many friends. He was married in 1856 to Miss Margaret McCall, and to them were born five sons and five daughters, three of each surviving him with their mother and all living in Florence. Their married life of sixty-four years was characterized by that perfect love and understanding which made it an example to those coming after them.
