Death of Mr. J. H. Willingham.

Judge J. M. Harlan received a dispatch from Terrell, Texas, Monday, announcing the death of his brother-in-law, Mr. J. H. Willingham, but gave no particulars. A letter was received from the family only a few days ago, stating that they were all well, and from this it is thought that his death was rather sudden. Mr. Willingham was raised in this county, where his father and mother now live. He went to Texas last January and located near Terrell, engaging in agriculture. His sad demise leaves a wife and five children in Texas, and a host of relatives and friends in this county to mourn his loss. He was universally popular, and many were the hearts made sad by the perusal of these few lines. The Times extends sympathy to the bereaved family in their far away home and to the aged father and mother, who can never again behold in life that which death has claimed as its own.—Calhoun Times, Nov. 29th.

The deceased was son of Mr. Joseph Willingham, formerly of this county, but now of Gordon. Mr. Joseph Willingham is an own cousin to the editor of the Free Press.
