Mr. N. T. Townsend, an old and honored citizen of East Perry, passed peacefully away on the 15 of May 1909, after an illness of three weeks. Mr. Townsend was 74 years old at the time of his death. He was a native Alabamian, having made Perry County his home all of his life with the exception of a few years. He lived in Louisiana, from which state he volunteered when the war began between the states and served with honor and credit to himself and the Confederacy.

After the war, Mr. Townsend returned to Perry County and in 1869, married Miss Emerline Church who still survives him. Unto them were born eight children, two sons and six daughters all of whom survive him except one, the oldest daughter who preceded her father to the grave several years. Mr. Townsend was a member of the Mount Olive Baptist church, but on account of declining health he had not attended his church for some years. He was a man of deep convictions and was true to them. It can be truly said a good man has passed away. The remains were interred in the Mount Olive Cemetery the 17 of May, a large number of relatives and friends attending the burial. Rev. J. S. Bolling conducted the funeral services.
