The funeral services of Mr. John Colson Grooms, the announcement of whose sad death we publish elsewhere, will take place at the Methodist church at 11 o'clock this a.m. The friends of the family and the public are invited to attend.
We regret to learn of the death of Mr. John Colson Grooms, which occurred at his home near Rice Creek, yesterday morning, of pneumonia. Mr. Grooms was the father of Mr. B. J. Grooms, the well known grocery man of this city, and was one of the oldest settlers of Putnam county, where he has lived for a long number of years. He was well known all over the county, and his many friends will regret to learn of his death. He leaves a wife and several sons to mourn his loss, who have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. Mr. Grooms was about sixty-five years of age.
