Mr. James L. Venable, of this county, died at his home, near Adairsville, on Wednesday night, June the 18th, 1884, in the seventy-second year of his life. He had been a painful sufferer for many weeks and his death was not altogether unexpected. He leaves a wife and a large family of children to mourn his loss.

The death of such a man as Mr. Venable deserves more than a passing notice. He was one of the pioneer settlers of North Georgia, having come to this country before the Indians left here. He belonged to the very best type of southern gentleman and was highly respected by all who knew him. James L. Venable was a good citizen and a pious Christian. The death of such a man is a loss to any community. For half a century, perhaps, he had been a member of the Methodist church, and lived up to his profession. His life was devoted to agricultural pursuits and he was a successful farmer. He was a brother-in-law of Maj. A. M. Foute, of this city. We have known Mr. Venable ever since we can remember, and he was ever the same quiet, courteous, dignified, Christian gentleman. We knew him well and sincerely mourn his loss. To his afflicted wife and bereaved children we tender our sympathy and condolence.
