Death of Rev. W. H. Goldwire.

The sad intelligence of the death of the Rev. W. H. Goldwire, on last Thursday, at Whitter, N. C., has just reached us.

But a few weeks ago, Mr. Goldwire, with two of his sons, left for North Carolina, in which state they had determined to locate.  He had for a long time been a prominent, faithful minister of the Baptist church.  He was a man of culture and a preacher of exceptional power.  In his religious views he was a man of uncompromising convictions, with the courage to announce them, but was the reverse of a bigot.  He had been a resident of this county since about 1869, and since that time had been the beloved and esteemed pastor of various churches in the county.

The announcement of his death will bring sorrow to many who had learned to regard him so highly.

“Kingston Dots.”

Our community was greatly shocked on the morning of the 26 ult., by a telegram announcing the death of Rev. W. H. Goldwire, Sr., at 6:10 p. m. the 25, at Whittier, N. C.  He was in his 63 year, was a good man, an able minister of the Gospel, none knew him but to love him.  His disease was pneumonia.  He left Adairsville about two weeks since complaining of not feeling well, for his new home amidst the beautiful and grand mountains of Western N. C.  He suffered greatly for near two weeks, and passed peacefully away, his sons William and James and one daughter being with him.  He had all the attention that medical skill could give, but death claimed him, and his spirit is now in the Glory land awaiting the Resurrection morning. – Jackie.
