Death of Mr. Wm. H. Hood.

Mr. Wm. H. Hood, an old and highly respected citizen of this county, died at his home near Cartersville last Thursday night about midnight.

“Billie” Hood, as he was familiarly called by a large number of friends and acquaintances, was a truly good man and his death is greatly regretted. The leading traits of his character were deep piety, strict integrity and rigid honesty and these admirable virtues he adhered to with unswerving persistency all through a useful life. He was an exemplary member of the Presbyterian church and held the office of deacon of the same at the time of his death.

Mr. Hood was in his 49th year at the time of his demise. He was born in York District, S. C., but his parents moved to this county before he had attained his majority. He early took a liking to farming and by hard work and close economy made a success of that calling. He took great delight in getting ahead of his neighbors in the raising of special products, in catching on to new ideas and growing larger and earlier fruits and vegetables. He was married in this county, his wife and five children surviving him. The funeral services occurred at the Presbyterian church of this city Saturday afternoon, Rev. James S. Hillhouse preaching the sermon. After these services the Knights of Honor, of which he was a member, took charge of the remains and at the grave the rites of the order were performed.

Mr. Hood will be missed at all the places he was accustomed to honor by his presence. His bereaved ones have the sympathy of all in their loss.
