Death of a Noted Person.

Miss Biddie Davis died Tuesday night, at her residence about five miles from this place on the Etowah river, at the ripe old age of seventy years.  Death was caused from a second attack of paralysis.  She was one-fourth Cherokee Indian.  Her father, Daniel Davis, died some years ago.  She was regarded by all the Cherokee Indians east of the Mississippi river as a person to whom they could go for protection and advice, and in all their troubles she was the first one they would consult.  No person ever went to her house and came away hungry.  She will be sadly missed by many poor families in her community, of whom she was the principal support.  The deceased has many relatives in the Cherokee Nation, among which is Capt. Wm. Penn Adair.  Her plantation is one of the finest in Lumpkin county.  She was a devoted member of the Methodist church and leaves a host of relatives and friends to mourn her demise.  Her remains were interred in the family burying ground on Thursday morning. – Dahlonega Signal.
