The Death of Mr. Wm. Puckett.

Mr. William Puckett, one of the oldest and first settlers of this county died at his residence about two miles below town, last Friday night, and was buried in the city cemetery last Sunday evening. He had been quite unwell for several days and his death was not altogether unexpected. Mr. Puckett was about seventy-five years old and had been a citizen of Bartow county for nearly fifty years. He was a good citizen, a plain, honest, quiet man who will be missed from among us. Mr. Puckett came to Bartow county while the Indians were here, and lived to see the county grow and develop into a rich and prosperous section. He was one of the landmarks of our county. “One by one they cross the river.” He passed away peacefully and quietly and his old bones will enjoy their repose. The bereaved family have the sympathies of a large circle of friends.
