“Over the County—Cass Station”

Mr. Morris Gilreath died of typhoid fever at his home near Cassville, Saturday evening at six o’clock. He was a young man of fine moral character, and by his upright life had made many friends and placed himself high in the estimation of both young and old, and we all are indeed made sad by his untimely death. He was a member of the Methodist church, and Dr. Felton preached his funeral sermon Sunday evening to a crowded house. His remains were interred in the Cassville cemetery.
