Recent Deaths in Cherokee.

Since the beginning of the new year, several of our friends in Cherokee have been called to their long home.

JORDON JOHNSON,

An old and respected citizen, died suddenly a few days ago.  He had reached four score years or more, and for some time past has been laboring under disease and the infirmities of age.  “Uncle Jordan,” as he was familiarly called, was a good man, a Methodist of the ancient type, proverbially honest, industrious, kind-hearted, and devotedly pious at all times and under all circumstances.  We knew him intimately for many years, and always felt when we looked upon his kind face and silvery locks that he was an “Israelite indeed, in whom there was no guile.”  How beautiful is old age, when adorned with meekness, temperance, charity, and the other Christian graces!  Truly, “the hoary head is a crown of honor, when found in the way of righteousness!”  Farewell, good old friend and brother!  May we meet you, when this tearful life is over, where gray hairs will be unknown, and where we shall flourish in immortal youth!
