Dr. John B. Goodwin, age 85, the last of the Confederate war veterans in Kingston, passed away at his home there Saturday morning about 7:30, having suffered a heart attack. His wife, and a daughter, Mrs. Will Maddox were with him at the time of his death.

Dr. Goodwin had apparently been in splendid health. He was in town Friday, and Saturday morning got up, and seemed to be in the best of spirits. He was a beloved gentleman, and everyone will regret to learn of his death.

The funeral arrangements are not known, but it is thought that they will be held some time Sunday. Interment will be made at Kingston.

Surviving Dr. Goodwin are his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Will Maddox, Mrs. Mary Goodwin Rogers; two sons, William Goodwin and Col. Thomas Goodwin, all of Atlanta; and two brothers, Rev. James Goodwin of Atlanta, and H. B. Goodwin, of Hall Station.

* Note from Emily O'Neal:  I discovered that this person was John David Goodwin, a physician in Kingston. The B. as his middle initial in his obit was a typo in the newspaper.
