Mr. Augustus N. Verdery

Mr. Augustus N. Verdery, a very aged and highly respected citizen of this city, was found lying on the side-walk, near Rev. P. M. Ryburn’s residence, Tuesday night about 10 o’clock in a very critical condition. He had been visiting some friends in the city, and while on his way home was stricken with apoplexy. It is supposed he had been lying there about one hour. He was carried to Mr. Ryburn’s and Dr. Leake was sent for. He was thought to be dying at the time, but by skillful treatment his condition is somewhat improved. It is hardly probable, however, that he will recover.

Death of Mr. A. N. Verdery.

Mr. Augustus N. Verdery of this city, who was stricken with apoplexy Tuesday night 19th instant, an account of which was given in the Express of last week, died Friday morning at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Warren Akin. Mr. Verdery was 87 years of age at the time of his death and had been a consistent member of the Baptist church about forty years. He lived and died a Christian; his passage over the river of death was quiet and peaceful, and we have every reason to believe that he is now “resting under the shade of the trees.” To his bereaved relatives and friends we extend our heartfelt sympathies.

The funeral services took place at Mrs. Akins at 8 o’clock Saturday morning, and from thence his remains were taken to Cassville cemetery, and tenderly laid away by the side of the kindred who have gone before him. May he rest in peace.
