Died in The Depot

Sad Death of Miss Callie Greer while on her way to visit her mother

A very sad death occurred in the waiting room of the Western and Atlantic depot Saturday morning. Miss Callie Greer, while living in the family of Mr. J. R. Henderson, near Stilesboro, had a spell of fever. On Saturday she insisted on going to see her mother, who lives with Mr. M. L. Johnson at Cass Station. Her friends deemed the trip a risky one, believing she was not strong enough for the ordeal, but their objections were of no avail. Miss Greer stood the ride to the train and on the train apparently very well, until she left the East and West car, when she complained of weakness. She was quickly carried by tender hands to the Western and Atlantic depot, where she expired in about twenty minutes. Dr. Calhoun, who was called too late to do her any good, says her death was caused from heart failure induced by her weak condition. Her remains were taken to the millinery store of Miss Padgett, where they were prepared for burial, and were sent back to Stilesboro. Miss Greer was well thought of by those who knew her and a special favorite with the family of Mr. Henderson.
