A Much Lamented death.

Mr. R. W. Satterfield, One of Cartersville’s Most Prominent Citizens, Passes Away.

Mr. R. W. Satterfield died at his home in this city on Wednesday, the 4 th instant.

No death in the community in years has been more universally regretted.

Mr. Satterfield was taken sick over two months ago. After a severe siege of suffering he thought he was practically well and having goods to purchase, as was his wont every season, went on to New York, believing that the trip would be a physical benefit to him. Immediately on his arrival in New York, he went direct to his hotel and took his bed. He gradually grew worse and was soon joined by his brother, G. W. Satterfield, who had him carried to the hospital. There he had the attention of several of the very best physicians of New York. They diagnosed his case and pronounced his malady cancer of the stomach. He came on home and gradually grew worse until he died only a few days after his arrival.

His funeral took place on Thursday and was one of the most largely attended that the town ever knew. The services were conducted at the Methodist church where the several ministers of the city made feeling talks.

Mr. Satterfield was born in Cherokee county, but moved to this city about thirty years ago, where he entered the mercantile business and continued in it successfully until his death. He was fifty-six years of age, and one of a large family of brothers and sisters, of whom only one brother and four or five sisters survive him. He leaves a wife and four children.

Mr. Satterfield was a splendid citizen. He was a thorough good business man and the large business he conducted was of mammoth importance to the city. His word was always his bond and no man possessed a more stable reputation for honesty than he. While not a member of the church, his life was characterized by many upright deeds and none doubt that in the hereafter he will occupy a seat with the just.
