Judge T. N. Stanford.
Well Known Citizen Passes Away Monday Night.

Judge T. N. Stanford died at his home on Gilmer street Monday night.  His death was not unexpected as he had lingered for several weeks in such a feeble physical stage as made the going out of his life an hourly possibility.

Judge Stanford has been for a long time a sufferer from indigestion.  This undermined his constitution and other complications followed.  Several months ago he took his bed, and finally was stricken with paralysis.  He bore his illness with strong heroism and resignation until the end came peaceful and calm.

Judge Stanford possessed some extraordinary strong traits of character.  He was conscientious in his acts and was strong in his convictions.  He was always for what he thought was right and held to his positions and belief unswervingly.  He was for eight years and up to his death a justice of the peace and always performed his duties faithfully and correctly.

He was born in Hancock county but came to North Georgia when a boy,  He lived for a number of years in Whitfield county, where he followed farming, but for about twenty years has been a resident of Bartow county and Cartersville.  His wife was Miss Mary Baker, a sister of Dr. T. H. Baker, and preceded him in death about fourteen years ago.

Judge Stanford leaves six children.  They are John Stanford, merchant of this city, Rev. T. B. Stanford, a Methodist preacher, stationed now at Baxley, Ga., James W. Stanford, merchant, Misses Partha, Viola and Ollie Stanford.  He has been since his boyhood a member of the Methodist church.

Judge Stanford fought in the war as a member of Col. Jeff Johnson’s regiment.

He was a member of the order of Freemasons, and was buried with honors from that order.

The funeral took place from the Methodist church at 2 o’clock.
