Mr. J. M. Commander died at Dunnellon last Saturday of typhoid fever. He was fifty-five years of age, and the last member of a large and influential family. He was a son of General J. M. Commander, one of the early pioneers of this county, a large planter, and a man who figured conspicuously in politics both in South Carolina and Florida.
The remains of Mr. Commander were taken to Reddick on the Atlantic Coastline railway and were interred in the family burying ground in near that place Sunday afternoon.
