Death of Dr. M. G. Williams.

Dr. Williams suffered for years with ulceration of the face; and while his death was not unexpected, it was with sadness that the friends received intelligence of his demise, which occurred at the residence of his brother, Mr. James Williams, in Screven county, on the 17th inst. Dr. Williams, son of Col. Shepard Williams, was born in Bullock county, Ga., Feb. 26, 1834. He moved to Cass county in 1849, and practiced medicine successfully for many years, after which he engaged in the drug business in Cartersville, which he continued until within the past few months, when his health failing him, he retired from all business. Hoping to improve his physical condition he went up to Murray county and spent a few months with his brother-in-law, Capt. Tilton. A few weeks ago he went to Screven county with the hope that a more moderate climate during the winter would be beneficial to him, where he died as stated above.

Dr. Williams was a quiet and kind-hearted man; unobtrusive in his manners and gentle in disposition. He leaves a wife, three sons and two daughters to mourn his death. The eldest daughter is also a daughter-in-law of the writer, and we truly sympathize with her and the family; the more so, because we have had so much of recent sorrow in our own family. To the bereaved, we can extend our heartfelt condolence. Dr. Williams was the grand-father of two of our grandchildren, and his death seems to us, also as a family bereavement. But such is the end of life, the destiny of mankind. We have every reason to believe the future had no terrors for Dr. Williams, though the parting with his family and friends may have been ever so sad.

Dr. Williams' remains were buried in Screven county, there to rest in peace while his memory will be held ever sacred in the hearts of those who loved him!
