Philip Peelor of Tivoli, one of the best known merchants in this section, was found dead Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock near the foot of a 'ladder which was leaning against the house of his son, Charles Peelor.' Mr Peelor was last seen alive shortly after 3 o'clock, when he was on the roof of his son's house cleaning off the snow. It is supposed that he either slipped and fell to the ground or that the work had proved too much for him and he had suffered a stroke. Dr. J. H. Dingman, who was called, said that death came from concussion of the brain, and that Mr Peelor had been dead probably an hour.
Mr Peelor was born in this county 78 years ago. For fifty years he conducted a general store in Tivoli, but fifteen years ago he retired, giving the business to his sons, Philip R. and Charles B., who have conducted it under the name of P. Peelor's Sons. Mr Peelor, Sr., has contented himself in the care of the store and of the places of his sons, in whom he took great pride and interest. Philip R. Peelor is the present postmaster at Tivoli. The dead man was highly esteemed in all circles and was a valued member of the Methodist church.
He is survived by his two sons, and three daughters who live in New Jersey. The Columbia Republican February 4, 1908
