The subject of the above notice, after an illness of a little more than a week, was called to cross the river of death, the way of all the living. He was taken down with pnemonia and was thought to be much better Friday and Saturday, but Saturday night he was struck with heart disease and passed away with scarcely a moments warning. In the decease of our friend and brother, the community has lost one of its most worthy citizens---the wife, a devoted husband---the children, a loving father, and the widowed mother a dutiful son. He was a very quiet, unassuming man---a man of strict integrity and honesty. He became a member of the Presbyterian church when quite a young man, and was electred to the office of Deacon in that church a few years ago, which he filled acceptably to his church and congregation. His funeral was preached Sunday evening by his pastor, Rev. W.O. Goodloe, after which his remains were buried in Mt. Olivet church yard. Peace be to his ashes.

Obit: In this county on the 29th inst., at the residence of her son David, Mrs. Nancy  Hathaway in the 70th year of her age. She was afflicted some length of time, during which no one could suffer more; but bore it with that Christian fortitude which has characterized her whole life, a life spent in the cause of Christianity, and replets with beneyolence and charity. Yes, she was kind and obliging, and no one can say that old Aunt Nancy was not a Christian. She died as she lived, confident of a bright and happy home in Heaven and she is now gone to the companionship of those angels of purity that surround the throne of God. An affectionate son and dutiful grand children mourn her loss, and many kind relatives all consoled by the thought that she is now happy above and has conquered death, the Christian's last enemy.

He raised a company and served 4 years in the Confederate army, and was mustered out in this city at the close of the war, and then moved to Paris, where he has since lived.
