Mr. B. E. Strickland.
Died At His Home in This City Last Friday Morning.

The death of Mr. Bryant E. Strickland occurred at his home, in this city, on last Friday morning.

Mr. Strickland had been in rather feeble health for some time, being subject to heart trouble, but had mingled among his friends up to the day before he died.  He took his bed Thursday.  After a rather bad night, during which his symptoms were the source of much anxiety among those who were with him, he expired rather suddenly on the morning referred to.

Mr. Strickland, during his earlier years and in middle life, conducted a mercantile business in Lawrenceville.  He went from there to Rome some twenty years ago and did business there for a number of years.  He moved to Cartersville and then to Lawrenceville again and back to Cartersville about five years ago.  He bought the Dr. Cason property on Market street, and resided with his wife there.

He was eighty-two years of age.  As a citizen he was quiet.  He was courteous and gentlemanly in his bearing and possessed the respect and good will of all who knew him.  He was a dutiful and devoted member of the Presbyterian church and his influence for good was always manifest.

He leaves a wife and three children.  These are Messrs. Ed and Albert Strickland, of this city, and Mrs. Claude White, of Memphis, Tenn.

The remains were taken to Lawrenceville on Saturday for interment.  Rev. E. M. Craig conducted the funeral services at the home before the remains left, on Saturday morning, and also went with the funeral party to Lawrenceville.
