Death of Milton Lovelace.

Mr. Milton Lovelace, an old citizen of this place died, on last Monday morning, at 9 o’clock.  Mr. Lovelace was one of the first citizens who located at this place, near a half century ago.  We believe he commenced life in Gwinnett county, but spent nearly all his life here.  He was about 68 years of age.  His remains were carried to the Methodist church, at 10 o’clock a. m., on Tuesday, where the usual singing and a prayer by Rev. W. H. Cooper, pastor of the Baptist church, was had, after which memorial services were held, many of the brethren testifying to the noble and faithful Christian character of the deceased.  The remains were carried from the church, where he had worshipped so long, to the cemetery, where he was laid to rest.  Rev. W. A. Dodge, pastor of the Methodist church, read the beautiful and impressive prayer and ceremony of his church at the grave.

Mr. Lovelace was a member of the M. E. Church for over fifty years, and for uniform piety and Christian devotion he has probably never been excelled.  He was always the same meek and unostentatious Christian, in sun and storm, in prosperity and adversity.  He was always ready to lend a helping hand to every good and moral work, and as ready to oppose that which was evil and wicked.  Let us all emulate his Christian example and precepts.

Mr. Lovelace leaves a wife and three daughters to mourn his loss.
