Death of Capt. George W. Maddox.

The sad news of the death of Capt. George W. Maddox, which occurred at his home near Emerson last Monday evening, was received in this city with great regret. The Captain, although born in Cherokee county, has lived the greater portion of his life in this city and county, where he has made, by his genial nature and kindness of heart, a large number of friends. During the war he made a gallant and faithful soldier, belonging to the Eighteenth Georgia Regiment, Company G. By profession he was a school teacher and at the time of his death was in charge of a large school at Emerson.

Capt. Maddox was a member of the Confederate Veterans Association and farmerís alliance, being secretary of both organizations.

He was buried Tuesday at the old Presbyterian burial grounds near this city with Masonic honors.

Capt. Maddox leaves a wife and several children, who have the sincere sympathy of all in their affliction.
