George S. Lockridge, of Stilesboro, Expires Sunday Morning.

Mr. George S. Lockridge, a young farmer, living on the old Riley Milam farm near Stilesboro, died very suddenly about 4:30 o’clock Sunday morning.

He had arisen and on returning to bed remarked to his wife that it was about ready to arise to get ready to attend meeting at Zion Hill that morning.  She replied that every thing nearly had been prepared the day previous.  He laid down and soon his wife noticed that he was breathing heavily.  She went to his side and raised him up and began rubbing him.  Suddenly he gave a gasp or two and fell back dead.  The physicians give it as their opinion that he died of neuralgia of the heart.  He had been complaining to some extent during the spring, but nothing serious was thought the matter with him.

The deceased was a most exemplary young man, 36 years of age, and leaves a widow and nine children, the oldest being 15 years of age. He had pitched a fine crop and had it in fine shape and was moving every energy for success.  He was an untiring worker, a kind husband and devoted father, and his death has cast a deep gloom among his relatives and those who knew him.

He was the eldest son of Mr. George W. Lockridge, the veteran mail carrier.  The family, the widow and the little orphans have the sympathy of all.  He was buried at Zion Hill Monday.
