Death of Mr. Jno. D. Head.

The shocking and painful intelligence was received, as indicated by the above heading in a telegram from Nashville, Tuesday evening.  Mr. Head went to Nashville about three weeks since, soon after which he was taken sick.  He was rational until life was extinct.  He was attended by Capt. Jno. L. Rice, of Nashville and Mr. Ab Baker, who went promptly upon hearing of his severe illness, and both remained to the end.

Mr. Head was well known as a most excellent business man. He leaves a widow and four children.

The remains are expected to arrive at this place today at eleven o’clock, and will be taken in charge by the Masonic Fraternity.  Burial at Oak Hill cemetery.

The burial will take place immediately after the arrival.

[A tribute of respect by the Cartersville Lodge No. 101, F. and A. M. can be found on page 3 of the March 7, 1879 issue.]
