Death of Dr. Griffin.
A Conscientious Christian Physician Passes Away.

Dr. Charles M. Griffin departed this life at the residence of his son, Mr. Gerald Griffin, in this city on the 2nd inst.

Dr. Griffin was a native of Ireland, immigrating from Limerick to join his two brothers, James and Daniel in 1876 [sic], with whom he remained until he entered the Philadelphia Medical College, where he graduated. Upon which, he removed to Cassville in this county, where he married Miss Susan A. Mays.

Dr. Griffin was one of those physicians who are so imbued with the desire to cure, that love for success as a physician caused him to ignore the importance of extracting remuneration; caring nothing for money except as a medium for securing the necessities of life. He was a conscientious Christian, but one who repressed his emotions, not only communing over his sorrows in solitude but withholding his admiration of those he held in esteem. Though his relatives in Georgia who saw so little of him, as well as his brothers and sisters in Ireland, will learn with sorrow of his death, his unwavering faith in the justice and goodness of God gives them hope and belief that he is now in Heaven with his loved ones.
