Recent Deaths in Cherokee.

Since the beginning of the new year, several of our friends in Cherokee have been called to their long home.


Died a short time ago near McConnell’s Mills.  He had been suffering for some time with a pulmonary disease, but bore his severe afflictions with Christian cheerfulness and fortitude.  We and Lumpkin were school mates when we were small children, were “boys together,” as well as “men together,” and our associations were pleasant through a long series of years.  He was a consistent member of the Baptist church, a good neighbor, a kind friend, an honest man and useful citizen.  He leaves a wife, several children and many friends to mourn his loss.  May we all meet him in Heaven at last, when our pilgrim days are past and gone!
