Death of Dr. S. F. Stephens.

Dr. Samuel F. Stephens, of Stilesboro, died at the residence of his son, Mr. James Stephens, at Talking Rock Factory, Pickens county, on the 25th day of November last, at 10 o’clock a. m., and was buried at Oak Hill cemetery, in this city, on the following day, at 3 o’clock p. m. He had been suffering for two years immediately preceding his death with Brights disease of the kidneys, of which disease he died. The deceased was born in Newberry, South Carolina, in 1820, and moved to Bartow county, Ga., in 1850, and settled at Stilesboro, where he lived till a short time previous to his death. He practiced his profession till about ten years ago when he gave up his practice and turned his attention mainly to farming. To him, more than any other person, the people are indebted for the building of the Cherokee railroad. He was receiver of the road in 1876 and 1877.

He was one of the best, most active and progressive citizens Bartow county ever had, and it is doing justice to the living and the dead to say that his place can scarcely be filled. He was a good and useful citizen, a true and faithful friend and a kind and affectionate husband and father. He leaves an ever faithful and true wife and six obedient and affectionate children. We extend to his bereaved relatives and friends our kindest sympathies, and wish him and them a happy reunion beyond the grave.
