Henry Nelson Mackey Sr.
Old Citizen of Butts County Passes Peacefully Away
It is with regret that we announce the death of Mr. Henry Mackey, an old and highly esteemed citizen of this county, who died at his home near Sardis church on Thursday and was buried at that church Friday. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. James Campbell. He was a zealous and prominent member of Sardis.
Way back in the 50’s Mr. Mackey came to our county from New York and for many years was Forman of the Nutting cotton mills, at Seven Islands, in this county. When the mills were burned by Sherman he removed to the home where he died, and divided his time between milling and farming.
Mr. Mackey leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter to mourn his death. He was a good citizen and loved by all who knew him.
He has gone to receive his crown with the Lord, the righteous who giveth him – to the place where there is joy, happiness and life.
As published in the Middle Ga Argus – Week of August 14, 1889.
