Bartow County

Departed this life on Thursday, the 11th day of September, 1873, half after 11 o'clock, A.M., at the residence of James D. Terrell. The subject of this notice was born in the State of Virginia, 12th October, 1786, being 86 years 10 months and 29 days old at his death. After he grew up to manhood he moved from his native state, and settled in Oglethorp county, Georgia, where he married Elizabeth Hoff, on the 4th day of July, 1816, and lived in this county for several years, when he removed to Pickens District, South Carolina, resided herein several years, removed again and settled in Cass now Bartow county, Georgia, on Pine Log Creek, in 1833, being one of the oldest white citizens in this county. The writer has known our departed friend since 1830, and can say of a truth that he was a good and an honest man. Our friend, and brother professed faith in Christ when he was about 27 years of age, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church soon thereafter, and continued to prove, by in orderly walk and Christian conversation, that he was one of God's elect, for we have the promise in Scriptures that if we keep the faith we shall receive a crown of eternal life. Our dear friend was paralyzed in 1867, from which he never recovered, which produced a complication of diseases resulting in intense suffering, which he bore, with Christian regulation and great fortitude, waiting patiently until the Master called him home, peace to his ashes.
