Death of Rev. P. E. Hawkins.

Truly a good man has gone.
Rev. P. E. Hawkins died at his home near Grassdale at 1 o’clock, on Saturday, the 18th instant. Mr. Hawkins had been suffering for several years with a troublesome cancer, from which death alone brought relief.

He moved to Bartow county in ’73 or ’74, from Tennessee, and with his brother, bought and settled on the place where he died. He in a few years bought out his brother, and by perseverance and economy made quite a success as a farmer.

He has been a Missionary Baptist minister for forty years or more, and his discourses were always interesting and impressive.

He was a kind, considerate good husband and father, and his wife and large family of children who survive him, as well as his neighbors and many friends, commingle their griefs over his demise. His remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery in this city on Monday last, Rev. Dr. Headden, of Rome, conducting the religious ceremonies. The remains were laid away with Masonic honors, members of the Pine Log, Cassville and Cartersville lodges officiating.
