Capt. Samuel M. May breather his last day before
yesterday at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. He had been sick for several weeks,
and his death was not unexpected. His remains were conveyed to their last,
long home yesterday morning at 9 o'clock.
Capt. May had resided in this city since 1865.
He moved to this place from Somerville, Tennessee. During the war he was a
member of the 1st Ga. Cavalry Regt., first as a Lieutenant and afterwards as
quarter master. He married a daughter of Dr. Jones who was at the time of
his death resided in this county on Arumchee. His wife preceded him to the
other world, she having died only a few months ago.
Capt. May passed away with a broken heart, and
was endowed with a manner of no ordinary character.
Testimonials of Capt. May may be said elsewhere
by members of the Rome Lodge of which he was a member.
Peace be with thee.
