After a lingering illness of several months, Mr. Warren Slavin, aged 80 years, died Sunday morning at the home of his nephew, Mr. James Burnside, where he had made his home for the past few years. Mr. Slavin had been in declining health, suffering from Brights disease, and his death was not unexpected. In his younger days he had been identified with the business interests of Hyattsville, conducting a mercantile business there and he had seen this section develop from its pioneer state to one of the most thriving and prosperous sections of the county. He was a devout member of the Presbyterian church.
Mr. Tom Slavin of Paint Lick was a nephew as was also Dr. Slavin of Danville. After services at the grave by Rev. Eldridge his body ws laid to rest in the old Paint Lick cemetery.
