One of the saddest deaths that has occurred in Kingston in many years was that of Mrs. Annie Hargis Griffin, wife of H. C. Griffin, which took place Friday morning, September 11.  Mrs. Griffin was not well when their house burned several weeks ago and had grown steadily worse ever since.  What makes her passing away particularly pathetic is that one of the twin babies she left is so frail that there is small hope of it’s surviving its mother and the other little one is far from strong.

Mrs. Griffin was buried Saturday afternoon in the Kingston cemetery beside two other children who had preceded her.  The funeral was very largely attended, friends and relatives coming from Atlanta, Cass, Rome and Adairsville, as well as Kingston and immediate vicinity, as she was well known, having lived here all her life, and greatly beloved.  During the ceremony which was conducted by Rev. J. E. Hudson, of Adairsville, and while loving hands covered the mound with beautiful flowers, there was not a dry eye in the assemblage.

Mrs. Griffin is survived by her husband, H. C. Griffin, and five children, Sam, Annie, Wanda, Lamar, and the twin babies, Mattie and Jamie; also, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Hargis, and sisters, Mrs. Cliff Johnson, Mrs. William Doolittle, of Titusville, Florida; Mrs. R. R. Whitehead and Miss Jessie Hargis, and two brothers, J. E. Hargis, of Cave Spring, and F. N. Hargis.
