  The measles, which have had a general run in the surrounding country as well as in our town, have seemingly been of a severe type, causing much suffering among those afflicted, and especially among older persons. We hear of two deaths near town the past week, resulting from relapses in cases of measles. Mr. James Brannon, a son of Mr. Enoch Brannon, about twenty two years of age, died on Tuesday of pneumonia, resulting from a relapse of measles. Mr. L.A. Kittle, living two miles from town died on the same day from much the same cause. These men were both enjoying apparent good health up to the time they were attacked with measles.

  We regret to announce this week the death of Mr. H. Barton, which occurred at his home near Prior's station, last Sunday night. Mr. Barton is a young man, about twenty-six years of age. For some time he had been afflicted with bronchitis, and Wednesday of last week was attach with measles. The two diseases in conjunction were such as to defy medical skill and bring on his death at the above stated time. Mr. Barton leaves a young wife and two small children. He was a son-in-law of Mr. Lucius Prior, and lived on his place. He was very much beloved by those who knew him. (The Daily Constitution, Atlanta, GA, February 27, 1881)
