[A very long article which includes the following Tribute of Respect:]

Mr. E. C. Stancell was born Dec. 21st, 1825, he married Miss Mary Patterson, April 11th, 1858, he enlisted as a private in the Confederate Army in 1862 in Company A, 18th Georgia Regiment. He died at his late residence near Acworth, in Cobb County, Sept. 3rd, 1887. His wife who survives him bore him no children, but his home was always a shelter for the homeless and orphan. He reared several poor children and started them in life to earn an honest living. He was a highly respected citizen, kind and obliging neighbor, true and devoted friend and ever ready to help the needy. He was a brave and gallant soldier, ?? at his post and would assume the duties of his fellow soldiers rather than ?? a single duty. He was among the first to advocate a reunion of the 18th Georgia Regiment. He was a faithful loving and provident husband. In the death of Comrade Stancell, the country has lost one of her best and noblest citizens whose departure has left a vacancy not easily filled. He was honest to a fault, true to every trust and conscientious in the performance of every duty.
