We were all shocked to learn of the death of our friend, Tom Sproull. He died at Kymulga, Ala. He was born and reared near here and lived here until a few days before Christmas, when he, with his father, moved to Kymulga, Ala. Last Friday morning about 5 o’clock he was taken very ill with dysentery and about 11 o’clock Saturday he breathed his last. Before he died he sang and prayed and said to tell his friends to meet him in heaven. The remains, accompanied by his brother and a few friends, were brought to Stilesboro and buried in the family graveyard near McGinnis at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon. The community sympathizes very much with his bereaved parents.
