Death of A. M. Franklin

The death of A. M. Franklin occurred at his home in this city on Saturday, the 22d of September.

He had become ill for some little time; his troubles at one time grew more favorable and he rallied so as to take rides in his buggy and mingle with friends, but a sudden relapse put him in bed, from which he never arose.

Mr. Franklin was a splendid citizen possessing a high sense of honor and strictest integrity.

At the great bush arbor meeting he professed religion and joined the Methodist church, of which, until his death, he was a consistent member.

He was in the cavalry branch of the confederate army and his comrades all say he made a good soldier.

He was connected with the sheriff’s office for thirty-odd years, being deputy sheriff when he died.

He was a Freemason and was buried with the honors of the order on the 22 nd, the funeral being conducted from the Methodist Church.
