Well Known Citizen Dies.
Mr. G. B. Foster Dies Suddenly at Home of His Daughter.

Mr. G. B. Foster, an old and respected citizen of Cartersville, died, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Warren Donahoo, last Sunday morning.  His death was sudden, he being found near the home, where he had expired after he had been missed by the family.  He was 69 years of age, but was well preserved and in apparent robust health up to the time of his death, which was from heart failure.

Mr. Foster was originally from Forsyth county but moved to Cartersville just after the war.  He was a skilled brickmason and a successful contractor and a larger part of the original brick structures in Cartersville were erected under his guidance in conjunction with his brother.

As a citizen he was honest and clean and never a word of detraction regarding his life demeanor was heard from any one.

He had been a member of the Baptist church forty years and lived a Christian life well worthy of emulation.

His wife preceded him in death just a year and five days.  He is survived by the following children: Mrs. J. W. Law, Kingston; Mrs. J. L. Padgett, Sugar Valley; W. R. Foster, J. B. Foster, Mrs. James Howard, Mrs. Warren Donahoo, Mrs. J. B. Smith, J. V. Foster and T. G. Foster, of this city.

The funeral took place Monday from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Donahoo, the services being conducted by Rev. J. E. Barnard.
