Death of Mr. Jesse Swain.

Mr. Jesse Swain died at his residence in Gordon county, on Thursday, April 3d, and was buried at the Oothcaloga graveyard, on Friday evening, April 4th. Mr. Swain was, with one or two exceptions, the oldest man in all this section, being at the time of his death in his eighty ninth year. He came to Georgia about forty eight years ago, and settled in Bartow county. He resided in this city about two years and then moved to Gordon county, where he lived continually till the time of his death. He was an earnest member of the Baptist church for more than forty years, and was noted for his honesty, integrity and liberality. He devoted his whole life to agricultural pursuits, and was a successful farmer. He was a man to command the respect and esteem of all with whom he came in contact. He was followed to the grave by a large number of friends and relatives who laid him quietly to rest beside his wife who had preceded him just twenty years. He was ready to go, and died peacefully and quietly, trusting God.
