Death of Riley Milam

Mr. T. Riley Milam one of the brightest and most promising young men of our county died at his father’s residence near Stilesboro last Sunday morning. He was the eldest son of Mr. H. H. Milam and was a little over twenty years of age. He completed his studies at the Stilesboro Academy last June and had just commenced the practice of law with Prof. J. H. Sanders at Cedartown when he was taken sick and returned home. He had been in bed about two weeks with typhoid fever, when death came to his relief. He was a general favorite at school and throughout the community in which he lived and gave promise of a useful and successful life.

He was a member of the Presbyterian church and led a consistent Christian life. The funeral service took place last Monday morning in the Presbyterian church at Euharlee, the services being conducted by Rev. Edward Bailey the pastor, assisted by Rev. J. E. England and Rev. J. S. Hillhouse. An unusually large congregation was present and his grave was literally covered with beautiful flowers.
