Kingston lost a valuable citizen in the death of Mr. W. A. Gillam.  He had many friends in this community who will be pained to learn of his demise.



Mr. W. A. Gillam, of Kingston, died at the residence of his sister, Mrs. Sheek, in Atlanta, on the 8th inst.  He had been a great sufferer for many months, and had gone to Atlanta for treatment, and to be with his brother, Dr. L. M. Gillam.  He had all that medical skill could do, besides the best attention from his loving wife and sister and other friends and relatives.  His remains were brought here on Friday evening.  His funeral was preached at the Methodist church at half past ten o’clock on Saturday, by Rev. J. M. White, to a large and sympathetic congregation, and after services the last sad rites were performed at the cemetery, where our neighbor, friend, brother and fellow-citizen was consigned to the silent tomb.  Nearly all the people in the town and surrounding country were present, showing by their presence that the deceased was highly respected in life. He leaves a wife, five children, one brother, two sisters and a host of friends to mourn his loss.  He left every evidence that he was ready for the summons.
