He was a man that had a great many friends. One only had to look into the faces of the large concorse of relatives, friends and acquaintances who were in attendance on the last sad rites incidental to placing his remains in the grave, to be consious of the high estimation in which he was held. He was a gallant ex-Confederate soldier and fought throughout the was as a private in a Tennessee Regiment. The deceased was a very active man and continually on the move looking after his affairs. He was a member of the Osborne Creek Baptist Church and was an earnest, conscientious Christian gentleman, and walked upright before God and his fellowmen. He was always a warm friend of the writer of this, and up to the time of his death had continued for years without a single interruption. His memory will ever occupy a warm place in our heart.

It is the almost univeral expression on the receipt of the news of his decease that the community has lost a good, useful, energetic, progressive man and citizen. As a friend to the bereaved family we tender condolence and sympathy in this their h hour of desolation, and we believe the whole community will join us in sympathizing with them.
