A Sad Death.

Prof. J. R. Siniard, a well known young man of Bartow county, and this section, died in Atlanta last Saturday evening at one o’clock, of appendicitis.  He was only sick a short while.  Prof. Siniard, at the time of his death, was working for W. R. Edwards.  He had been in their employ only a short while.  His remains were brought to Acworth Sunday morning and were conveyed to Cross Roads cemetery and interred Sunday at 2 o’clock p. m.  Prof. Siniard was as fine a specimen of physical manhood as ever was known in the country, and was a man of many good traits of character.  He was a professor of vocal music and stood high in his profession, and his death will cast a heavy gloom over the community and wherever he is known.

He was a good honest and industrious citizen, loved and respected by a large circle of friends who will greatly miss his genial presence, his words of cheer and kindly acts.  He was soon to have been married to one of Bartow county’s best and fairest daughters.

He leaves a father, mother, four brothers and one sister, to whom he was ever kind and affectionate.  His separation from them is sad indeed and but few can realize the depths of grief that fill the hearts of the stricken ones.  The bereaved family have the sympathy of the community and the prayer of many is that God may comfort them in their great sorrow and bless them with His love and peace.

A precious one from us is gone;
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
In remembrance of our loving friend, Prof. J. R. Siniard.
A Friend.
