Mr. Richard Howell, Beloved Citizen, Died on Friday

Many Prominent Family Connections Here — Funeral At Macedonia

After an illness of many months duration, Mr. Richard L. Howell, 70, beloved resident of Bartow County for many years, passed away at his home here late Friday evening.  He had been in failing health for some time and the end was not unexpected.

Funeral services were conducted at Macedonia Sunday morning at 11 o’clock, Rev. W.E. Hembree officiating in the presence of a large following of sorrowing relatives and friends. Interment was in the family lot at Macedonia cemetery.  Cummings-Long-Owen were in charge of funeral arrangements.

Born in Bartow County in 1887, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Steve Howell, Mr. Howell spent much of his life-time here, although he made his home in Cherokee County for a number of years.   He has many prominent family connections here and had a wide circle of friends throughout this section. He and his wife, the former Miss Alice Elliott, only recently celebrated their fiftieth anniversary.

Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Mr. Jesse A. Howell of Cartersville and six daughters.   They are Mrs. B.T. Abernathy, Mrs. Silas Hardin, Mrs E.R. Abernathy, and Mrs J.M. Tidwell of Cartersville; Mrs. W.A. Abernathy of Woodstock and Mrs. J.T. Abernathy of Acworth.   Three brothers and one sister also survive.   They are Messrs R.W., W.M., and J.D.

Tenderest sympathy is extended to members of the bereaved family in their great loss.
