“Over the County—Ford.”

We are sorry to learn of the death of Elder Sam Law, which occurred last Saturday morning near the Creswell farm after an illness of short duration. He was well known in this section and loved by all who knew him. May God bless the bereaved family and have them learn that their loss is his eternal gain.

Rev. S. H. Law

A Beloved Minister, Good Man and Clever Citizen Passes Away.

On November 2d, one of Bartow county’s best citizens passed away. I refer to the death of Rev. Samuel H. Law, which occurred at his home, near Cartersville. He was born in 1842 and was 53 years old at the time of his death.

In early life the truths of the bible found lodgment in his heart. He committed his way unto him who is abler to direct our paths at the age of 20 years, while in service as a confederate soldier, near Cumberland Gap, Tenn., he joined the Baptist church and was baptized by Rev. G. M. Thompson. He was a man in the true sense of the word; was diligent in business and made a success in farming. His honesty and truthfulness were proverbial. He was ever a pillar in the church, and during the latter years of his life, was a faithful lay preacher, and on October 19 th, next, preceding his death, he was ordained to the ministry. He loved the service of his Master, and lived a life actuated by the principles and inspired by the example of the lowly Nazarene.

He was married in 1868 to Mrs. Rachel Hopson, who with four children and five grand children, survive him. Those who knew him honored him for his many sterling qualities, and earnest endeavor to live as near perfect as sinful humanity may. His was a useful life, but God in His all-wise providence has taken him from the scene of mortal action.

“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.”
