William D. Thompson
DIED. In Nashville, Tenn., on the 12th of May, 1874, after a lingering illness of 10 months, Wm. D. Thompson, formerly of this city, aged 29 years and 8 months. He was a young man of excellent education and good qualities, and bade fair to become an honorable member of society, but God, in His all wise providence, thought best to call him to Himself. A week previous to his death he embraced religion, and all his desire was that he might be brought and laid to rest among his kindred and friends. His remains were brought to this city on the 18th inst., by his brother, G. W. Thompson; and on the 19th, were followed to their last resting place by a large concourse of sorrowing friends. He leaves an aged widowed mother to mourn his loss, but her loss is his eternal gain. "Be ye followers of me as I am also of Christ." M. J. L.
