Terrell, Capt. Julian F.

AN OLD CITIZEN DEAD


Capt. J. F. Terrell Passes to Rest on the 6th inst.
   Capt. Julian F. Terrell died Saturday, April 6, 1901 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Sallie McGee, in Milton, W. Va., after several years suffering with stomach trouble, aged 67 years.
   He was born in Hanover county, Va., in June, 1834, and was married in 1854 to a Miss Christmas.
   Probably no death affected the people of this community more than did the demise of Capt. Terrell, who was known throughout the entire State and was loved by every one who had ever had an acquaintance with him.  He was a genial gentleman, a splendid fellow in every way, and during the entire sixty-seven years of his life was always found to be all right.  In the Confederate army he served most brilliantly and gained many thanks from the leaders of the "lost cause" for his valiant services.  He raised a nice family, two sons and a daughter, respectively, C. H. Terrell, of Richmond, Va., J. D. Terrell, of Charleston, W. Va., and Mrs. Sallie McGee, of Milton, survive him.
   He was always a fighter for Milton's progress, constantly pushing forth the advantages of the community, and the entire State loses a great advocate in his death.
   His obsequies Monday showed how nobly he was held by the people. The funeral was largely attended and there were many moist eyes in the congregation.
  Interment was at the Milton cemetery.
