Father Kilpatrick

He is probably the Oldest Man Now Living in Georgia

Mr. W. A. Kilpatrick, or “Father Kilpatrick,” as he is more familiarly called, a resident of this city, is perhaps the oldest man in Georgia, he having passed his 108 th birthday. He is now in good health, never complaining of an ache or pain, and of mild pleasant days ventures out to church. He was born in Hancock County and has lived all his days in Georgia. His wife is living and is herself at the advanced age of 90. They have had thirteen children born to them, seven of whom are living. Mr. Kilpatrick has always been a strictly temperate man, and has been a devout Christian since he joined the Methodist church, fifty years ago. His father served in the revolutionary war, and he himself enlisted for the Indian War, but saw no actual service as the company he was in was not needed.
