Death of Cornelius M. Bozeman
An old and prominent citizen- one of the "landmarks" of Hawkinsville-
has passed away. Cornelius Murphy Bozeman expired at his residence in this place on Monday night last, May 23, 1881, at a quarter of nine o'clock, aged sixty-two years. The deceased was born in Milledgeville, Ga and at the age of ten years moved with his parents to Pulaski county, in which he has resided ever since.
Judge Bozeman was a citizen of prominence and influence- possessed of strong will and determination, firm in his convictions of right and justice, true to his friends, and courageous under all circumstances. In politics, he was active and unswerving.
Before the war, Judge Bozeman represented this county in the House of Representatives and in the State Senate, and he held other offices of honor.
Having been a citizen of Pulaski since the earliest days of the county, and knowing Hawkinsville from infancy, he was never at a loss to furnish us for publication with a correct version of any incident or event in the history of the town and county.
Judge Bozeman was a man of usefulness, and the vacancy created by his death will be long unfilled. He was a member of Mt. Hope Lodge F. A. M. and of Anderson Lodge I.O.O.F of Hawkinsville, was also a member of the American Legion of Honor and belonged to St Omer Commandery of the Knights Templar of Macon. A delegation of the Sir Knights of that city came down this (Wednesday) morning to join in the obsequies, which were performed at the grave in Orange Hill cemetery at eleven o'clock, and at this hour nearly all the stores are closed and business generally suspended.
