Walter F. Lee Buried Saturday
Young Man Who Died Suddenly While on Guard at Trestle Was Popular at Cassville.

The funeral of Mr. Walter F. Lee, 32 years old, who died late Thursday afternoon of last week while guilding (sic) the W. & A. over the Etowah River was held at the residence of his mother in Cassville last Saturday evening. Rev. Mr. Mullins of Alabama conducted the service, and funeral arrangements were in charge of G.M. Jackson & Sons of Cartersville. The pall-bearers were Messrs. George Gaddis, M.D. McCrary, J.D. Pittard, Eugene Chunn, B.C. Sloan and W.A. Gilbert. Quite a large number of his friends were present to pay a tribute to the memory of Mr. Lee, who died under such tragic circumstances.

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. W.B. Milhollin, one half-sister and two half-brothers. He was a son of the late N.T. Lee, who passed away a number of years ago. He was born in Brundige, Ala., November 2, 1889, and had lived since boyhood at Cassville.

He was sworn in as a deputy and sent to guard the W. & A. trestle over the Etowah. While performing this duty last Thursday afternoon he was stricken with a hemorrhage of the lungs, and died before medical aid could be summoned from town. Mr. Lee was well known and quite popular in his home community, and his unexpected demise has occasioned deep sorrow.
