A Good Citizen Gone.

Mr. Zimri W. Jackson died suddenly at his home, near this city, on Monday morning last. He had been in rather feeble health for some time, but his energies never failed him and he kept going. On the morning in question he arose, as usual, and prepared to partake of breakfast, when he complained to his son, Mr. George Jackson, who had just come in, that he did not feel well. When he sat down to the table he was seen to give way and fell over and in a little while he was dead. A heart affection (sic) was thought to have been the seat of his trouble.

Mr. Jackson was, truly, one of the best citizens of Bartow county. He was progressive, honorable, charitable and kind to all, and numbered his friends by the score. He was about 68 years of age. He was a member of the Cassville Methodist church, and was among its staunchest pillars. He had resided in Bartow county pretty well all his life and had reared a large family notable for intelligence, energy and general good traits, consisting of one daughter, Mrs. Patten, of Walker county, now dead, and five sons, who, with a noble wife, now survive him.

Mr. Jackson was a successful farmer during his latter days, but earlier a prominent contractor, and was connected with the construction of Bartow’s court house besides a number of Cartersville’s business structures.

His death is a loss shared in not alone by members of his family but by all who knew him.
