DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN.

Mr. J. M. Cox Dies Rather Suddenly Friday of Last Week.

Mr. J. M. Cox, father of Mr. James Cox, died rather suddenly last Friday night.  Though he had been in declining health for years his sudden end was entirely unexpected.  Friday morning he had walked to the field with his son some distance away looking at the crops.  His son commenced plowing and when some distance away noticed his father had fallen to the ground.  Hastening to his side he was found as if in a deep sleep, in which condition he remained until a few minutes before he died that night.  He died as if in a deep tranquil sleep.

Mr. Cox was a native of South Carolina, 71 years of age, moving to Gwinnett county, 50 years ago, from where he moved to Bartow county about 30 years ago.  He was a faithful member of the Baptist church, and was buried at Emerson Saturday.  He left a wife and four sons, J. M., Henry, John, and Tandy Cox.  He was an active man, during life, well liked by all who knew him and his death has occasioned much sadness among them.
