Mr. S. T. M’Candless.
Died at His Home in This City on Tuesday morning.

Mr. Samuel T. McCandless, died at his home in this city Tuesday morning after an illness of about four weeks duration, with paralysis of the bowels.

He was born in Habersham county on August 18, 1828, and was in his seventy-first year.  When he was a child his father moved to Cherokee county, where he grew to manhood, and was married to Miss Amanda Say in 1854.  He lived in Cherokee a few years after his marriage, and moved to Cartersville in 1858, making this place his home since that time.  He was the father of several children, but only one daughter, Miss Maggie McCandless, survives him.  His wife preceded him to the grave about three years ago.

Mr. McCandless joined the Methodist church when a boy, and was held in high esteem as a Christian gentleman by all with whom he came in contact.  He was a mill-wright and built a number of mills throughout this section in his younger days.

The funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church yesterday morning by the pastor, Rev. B. P. Allen, and the interment took place at Oak Hill cemetery.
