"Mr. Aaron LAND Dies Suddenly: One of the Most Prominent Planters of the County Expires of Heart Failure. // Mr. Aaron LAND, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Muscogee county, died yesterday morning at 3:40 o'clock at his home, about six miles northeast of the city; in his death which is deplored by a host of friends, there passes away one of the landmarks of the old Double churches community in the upper part of the county. Mr. LAND's death, which was very sudden, was due to heart failure. Shortly after 3:30 o'clock he arose and was doubtless stricken after he left the bed, as he fell heavily to the floor. His fall aroused the members of his family, who hurried into his room. Mr. LAND died almost immediately, expiring before he could be placed upon the bed. Physicians stated afterward that death was due to heart failure. Mr. LAND was 67 years of age. He was born in Coweta county, February 24, 1834, and moved to Muscogee county when just entering upon young manhood. He soon became popular in the community in which he settled, and for a great many years has been regarded as one of the best citizens and most substantial farmers of the county. In 1860 Mr. LAND married Miss A[ngeline] P[olk] LOKEY, daughter of the late J[ohn] T[aylor] LOKEY. He was in the Confederate service from 1862 until the close of the war, and was a gallant soldier. From the war until his death Mr. LAND was one of the sturdiest figures in the Double churches community. A man of the sternest integrity, fair-minded and just in his dealings, a good neighbor and citizen, he enjoyed the esteem of the entire community. Mr. LAND joined the Primitive Baptist church of his neighborhood [Mt. Moriah] early in the seventies, and was one of the most prominent members of the church, to which he had been ordained deacon. He took a lively interest in the school in his community, of which he was a liberal patron, and for years he was an influential member of the Muscogee county board of education. Mr. LAND was an extensive planter. Besides his devoted wife, Mr. LAND is survived by the following sons and daughters: Mrs. J[ohn] T[homas] WHATLEY [Sr.], Mrs. T[homas] Z[ephaniah] MILLER, Misses Katie and Lena LAND, and Messrs. J[ohn] T[aylor], F[rederick] M[onroe], A[ndrew] J[acob], H[ezekiah] B[ussey?], A[aron] B[rewster], M[artin] J[enkins Crawford] and Paul [Lokey] LAND. Mr. John T. LAND, now located at Meridian, Miss., was wired of his death. Miss Katie LAND, who has been attending the Georgia Normal and Industrial School at Milledgeville, was notified at once of the sad event, and arrived in the city last night. The news of Mr. LAND's death was received with great sadness in Columbus, where he had many warm friends. It came as a general surprise, as he had been in excellent health. The funeral occurs at 3 o'clock this afternoon from Double churches, 6 miles northeast of the city." [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, 12 OCT 1901, p. 5.]

"Mr. Aaron LAND's Funeral. // The funeral of Mr. Aaron LAND occurred yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock from Double churches, six miles northeast of the city. A very large number of friends and acquaintances were present at the services, the whole community of which Mr. LAND had been for so many years a valued citizen, turning out to pay a last tribute of respect to his memory. The [Mt. Moriah] Primitive Baptist church building was filled with sorrowing friends, and the services, which were conducted by Rev. A. B. WHATLEY and Rev. Mr. BULLARD, were affecting in the extreme. The pall bearers were Messrs. Geo. E. GLENN, F. J. JOHNSON, John F. FULLER, Judge Joseph F. POU, J. T. EASON, J. W. BRITTON and I. P. MURRAH. The interment was at the cemetery in the rear of the church." [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, 13 OCT 1901, p. 2.]
