Death of John R. Burgess

The many friends and acquaintances of Mr. J R Burgess will regret to know of his death. He died in Healing Springs, Ala., on the evening of the 25th inst., whither he had gone a short time since in hope of recuperating his failing health. Mr. Burgess was of the firm of Burgess and Poindexter, Cliftonville Noxubee County, Miss., and a more honorable, upright businessman is rarely, if ever, found. He was in the truest sense one of nature's noblemen - "an honest man" - and added to this, he ever illustrated the highest and noblest characteristics of the ostentatious christian gentleman. For years our friend had been a great sufferer from ill health, yet he continued at his post of business with a degree of fortitude and will-power, that excited the wonder of all who knew him. In his death the community and county has been deprived of a useful citizen, the church one of its most exemplary and consistent members, and his wife and brother a companion and friend who through all the varied relations of life has left to them a character above reproach, and a name untarnished. His remains will be interred this evening at Deer Brook cemetery at 1:30 o'clock - Dispatch
