Death of Mr. J. C. Tumlin

One of Bartow County’s Most Popular Citizens Passes Away on Tuesday Night.

Mr. James C. Tumlin died at his home, near this city, on Tuesday night at 12 o’clock, of pneumonia with which he had suffered for about ten days. Mr. Tumlin first complained of feeling badly from a closeness and pains in his chest, but did not take medicine for a few days. When he called in a doctor he had high fever and was at times delirious and heroic efforts were made to combat his malady, which at several junctures promised to be successful, but finally the disease got the better of him and he died at the time above named.

Mr. Tumlin was one of the most popular citizens of the county. By nature he was genial and companionable, he was noted for his loyalty to his friends and he was ever ready to help further any public movement calculated to benefit the community. He was active in political matters, was courageous and unyielding in what he thought was right and his usefulness and prominence was made a member of the county democratic executive committee for his district. He several years ago held the office of deputy collector of internal revenue and was a faithful and efficient officer. Mr. Tumlin at one time went to the West Point Military Academy but never finished a course there.

He was a member of the Methodist church, which he joined at the noted bush arbor meeting.

Mr. Tumlin was born in Bartow county, being the son of Hon. Thomas Tumlin, who lives at Kirk’s Grave, Ala. His mother is also living but in feeble health. Four sisters, two married and two single, also survive him.

Mr. Tumlin’s wife was Lida Field, of this city. She with five children, survives him.

The funeral services are to occur tomorrow.
