FALLS DEAD NEAR ROME.
Captain John Tucker Looks Upon His Burning Home, Then Dies.

Rome, Ga., April 17. – The residence of Capt. John Tucker, at Lake City, twelve miles from Rome, was destroyed by fire this morning about 4 o’clock.  Captain Tucker had become greatly excited during the fire and dropped dead.  He was sixty years of age and leaves a wife and several children.  Captain Tucker was well known here and served during the civil war as captain of Company B, twenty-first Georgia Regiment.

The house was a large one-story frame affair and the family saved but a few things.  The loss will amount to considerable.  It is not known how the fire started.
