August 15, 1877


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.
