Died, at his father’s residence in this place on yesterday morning, OSCAR, second son of D. W. K. PEACOCK, about eighteen years of age.  He was at church on Sunday night, but on returning home was taken very ill with meningitis.  The fell disease baffled all the efforts of his physician and the father and mother are now left with broken hearts to mourn the loss of a son, just developing into a vigorous and promising manhood.  “So fades a summer cloud away.”  We deeply sympathize with the sorrowing family, and commend them to Him who is too wise to err, and too good to be unkind.  His funeral will be preached in the Baptist Church, this morning, at ten o’clock. [A tribute of Respect to Oscar M. Peacock by a friend, can be found on page 3 of the January 22, 1874 issue.  Another obituary written by his pastor can be found on page 3 of the January 29, 1874 issue; this obituary states that he is the second son of D. W. K. and Sarah A. Peacock and “aged sixteen years, six months and fourteen days.”  It adds: “In his 12th year he united with the Cartersville Baptist church and until the day of his death was a firm and consistent member…He was generous in disposition, frank and engaging in manners, firm and decided in character.”]
