A Tender Tribute to the Memory of H. G. Henderson.

Mr. H. G. Henderson was born at Lawrenceville, S. C., March 9, 1854, and died at Ludville, Pickens County, Ga., June 3, 1876, aged 22 years.

To be kind and friendly to every one seems to have been his motto.  The writer of this tribute to the memory of the deceased was intimately acquainted with him and always found him to be kind, sociable and generous.  He has in South Carolina a mother, two sisters and a brother to mourn their loss.  He knew not where his father was buried, the same having died when he was about four years of age, and his mother being too poor to take care of him he was entrusted to Mrs. Madden, who spared no pains to raise him to walk uprightly.  He joined the Baptist Church when he was about eleven years of age—came to Georgia in January, 1875, and entered Ludville High School the following August.  He was highly esteemed by the Professor and students and was a diligent seeker after knowledge and wisdom.  When death approached, he gave himself up to Jesus and passed over the river into the land of peace and happiness, where there is

“No more fatigue, no more distress,
Nor sin, nor pain shall reach the place,
No sighs shall mingle with the songs
Which warble from immortal tongues.

No rude alarms of raging foes.
No cares to break the long repose,
No midnight shade, no clouded sun,
But sacred, high, eternal noon.”
