Died At Grassdale.

Mrs. Milner, of This City, Passes Away After Long Illness.

Mrs. Sallie Milner died, in her 75th year, at the home of her son, Mr. Richard A. Milner, at Grassdale, on Sunday last, after an illness extending through four or five years and which she bore with a Christian fortitude peculiar to her nature.

Mrs. Milner’s death removes a member of one of the prominent families of the community, she being the widow of the late Maj. William Milner, who preceded her in death about six years ago, and who was one of the most useful and upright citizens Cartersville has claimed during her existence as a town.  He was an elder in the Presbyterian church for years and an active worker for his church and in all moves for the good of the community he lent willing and zealous aid.  He and Mrs. Milner were both born in South Carolina, the former near Laurens, C. E. (?), and the latter at Edgefield.  She was educated at Columbia.  Maj. Milner, with his father, moved to this locality during its earliest settlement.

Mrs. Milner leaves eight children living, Messrs. T. C., C. A., R. A. and W. H. Milner, Mrs. Wallace, of Wallaceville, Edgefield county, S. C., Mrs. ??? [name obscured], of Kansas, Mrs. S. H. Galloway, of Marietta, and Mrs. McMeekin, of Columbis, S. C.

Deceased was a lady of much force of character and made her influence felt in many useful ways when she was in health.  She was a wise counselor for her children, charitable and kind and her goodness shone out in brilliant proportions.  She will be missed by her large relationship and many friends.

The funeral took place from the Presbyterian church Monday evening, Rev. E. M. Craig, assisted by Revs. Bealer and Allen, conducting the services.  The remains were interred at Oak Hill.
