Empire State - Spalding County Georgia Week of March 26,1856

During a very few days past, the Angel of death has plied his sickle with no idle hand.

On Saturday the 8th inst. Dr. Benj. F. Carter late Representative from the county of Murray died at the residence of his father, Col. F. Carter, of consumption. Dr. C. was a most estimable young man, and his premature death is deplored by all who knew him.

On Tuesday the 11th  Mr. Richard F. Budd, proprietor of the Washington Hall in this city died. Mr. Budd had been a citizen at this place only a short time. He came, we believe, from Canada. He was an old man.

On the night of the same day, Dr. Holmes, assistant Physician of the Lunatic Asylum died of Pneumonia, at the residence of Dr. T. F. Green. Dr. Holmes we believe was originally from Floyd county Ga. He was an estimable young man, with a bright promise of future usefulness and distinction.

On the same day Mr. Chas. Jenkins, an aged man, was drowned in the Oconee opposite the city.

On the 15th inst., Mrs. Mary M. Cotting, wife of Dr. John R. Cotting, formerly  State Geologist, of Pneumonia
