Wade Milam Dead.
Former Bartow Countian Passes Away at LaGrange.

News came by telegram to the relatives here Tuesday morning that Mr. Wade W. Milam had died Monday night, at LaGrange.

Mr. Milam had been in poor health for some time, being beset with liver trouble, which caused a general breakdown, and he has been considered dangerously ill for several weeks, his relatives here being notified daily regarding his condition.  His death was, therefore, not an unexpected event.

His brother, Mr. Sam F. Milam, left Tuesday morning for LaGrange to the funeral.

Wade Milam was a big-hearted, genial natured man, who had many friends. He was fifty years old last April.  He was reared in Bartow county, and many around Stilesboro and this place remember him in boyhood and young manhood.  In 1879 he went to Cedartown, where he did business and made his home for twelve years or more, then moved to LaGrange where he put up and conducted the local telephone exchange.

He married just before moving to Cedartown a young lady of Greenville, Ga.  She survives him and also four children.

Mr. Milam was a brother of Messrs. J. C. and Sam F. Milam, of this city and Mr. John Milam, of LaGrange.  He was buried at LaGrange.
