Died, at his residence in seventeenth district, Bartow county, Ga., of apoplexy, Mr. THOMAS GORE, in 79th year of his age.  His parents were Quakers, and moved in an early day from Loudon county, Va., to South Carolina, where the deceased was born and raised.  He was a kind husband, an affectionate father, noted for his industry and honesty.  On the day of his death he cut some wood and expressed himself as feeling unusually well.  He took a nap in the same room where his family was sitting, and on waking up about one o’clock p. m., he made some remarks about putting some more wood on the fire, in a few moments fell back on the bed and in less than an hour was dead.  He was a brother of Joshua Gore of this county.  His beloved relatives have the sympathy of the entire community.  Mr. Gore was a firm believer in the Christian religion, and held to the doctrine of the Methodist church.  He died on the 17th ultimo.

[Note: The name is spelled both Gore and Goar in these articles.]
