The friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. M. C. JACKSON, are invited to attend the funeral of the former, at the Presbyterian Church, this (Thursday) morning, at 11 o’clock.
Cartersville, February 15th, 1872.


GRIM VISAGED DEATH has again visited our precincts and removed from our social circle our highly esteemed friend and fellow-citizen, MILTON C. JACKSON.  He died at his residence in this place with dropsy of the chest, after a lingering illness of several weeks, on yesterday (Wednesday) morning, 5 o’clock.  Mr. J. was one of our most enterprising and useful citizens.  In his death our community has sustained a loss that is irreparable.  Before his death, we learn, he attached himself to the Presbyterian Church, and received the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.  While we weep with, and tender to his grief-stricken and bereaved family our heartfelt condolence, we weep not as those without hope.  When he joined the church, he had his little children dedicated to God in holy baptism, his wife already being a member; and while he, with his family, received the emblems of Christ’s broken body and shed blood, he doubtless, remembered the Saviour’s promise to his disciples on the night of His betrayal, that “they should drink it anew with Him in His Father’s Kingdom,” which promise, he has, we believe, ere this, realized in all its fullness.  He is gone from our midst, and left his dear ones behind to follow after him –part of his family have crossed the flood, and part are crossing now.

His remains will be interred in the town cemetery, after the funeral services at the Presbyterian Church at 11 o’clock to-day (Thursday), with Masonic honors.
