Succumbs To Heart Failure at Home in Adairsville.

Mr. W. W. Trimble, one of the best known and most highly esteemed citizens of Bartow county, died suddenly at his home in Adairsville last Thursday morning.  Mr. Trimble was a farmer and extensive peach grower.  The Adairsville Banner contains the following notice of his death:

“Mr. William W. Trimble, Sr., a highly respected citizen of near here, died very suddenly at his home Thursday morning at three o’clock of heart failure.  On awakening him Mrs. Trimble found he was dying.  Dr. C. M. Chamblee was called but he died before the doctor could reach him.

“Mr. Trimble was 64 years of age and the only son of the late A. C. Trimble, who was one of the pioneer citizens of north Georgia.

“Mr. Trimble was married to Miss L. J. Gray, a daughter of Col. J. W. Gray, of this place, and a sister of Mr. J. R. Gray, of Atlanta.  He leaves a wife and eight children and four grandchildren to mourn his sad death.  The children are Misses Clara, Ella, Lulie and Gussie, Mr. William, Jr., Layton and Richard Trimble, and Mrs. Thomas J. Noland.

“Mr. Trimble was one of the best men in out community and a devoted Christian, having joined the Methodist church at Poplar Springs in 1875.  He was a very successful farmer and peach grower, having accumulated quite a lot of property.  The interment was at Poplar Springs cemetery.” [Another mention of the death can be found on page 8 of this issue in the Adairsville section of the “County News.”]
