Death of Dr. C. F. Griffin

A Well Known Physician and Ex-Citizen of Bartow Dies

The news of the death of Dr. C. F. Griffin at Ocala, Fla., on Monday came as a saddening piece of intelligence to his relatives and many friends in Bartow County.

Dr. Griffin lived at Cassville and practiced medicine for seven or eight years, selling out his home there and moving to Rome a little over three years ago. Dr. Griffin while he lived in Bartow had a large practice and had many friends in the county, being a good citizen, and genial and kind hearted gentleman. When he moved to Rome he soon built himself up a good practice and won friends rapidly among the people. His health began to decline and he finally had to give up practice. On the advice of his friends he went to Florida at the beginning of the winter season, hoping that the change would be beneficial to him. Though there were times when he seemed to have improved some, his condition grew rapidly worse until the end came at the time above stated.

Dr. Griffin was 42 years of age. He leaves a wife and four children to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father. His remains were brought to this county on Tuesday. They were met by a large gathering of friends at Cass Station and accompanied to their last resting place in Cassville cemetery.

“Over the County--Cassville.”

Mrs. Alice Griffin has erected a nice monument to the memory of her husband, Dr. Columbus F. Griffin. Besides date of birth and death, it has only: “He went about doing good.” As simplicity is the height of beauty, this surpasses any other tombstone in the cemetery. Mrs. Griffin was most heartily welcomed by her many friends.
