An Old Citizen Passes Away.

Mr. Isham Alley, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed citizens of Cartersville, passes over the river, after a brief illness.  His death occurred last Monday afternoon and was directly the result of Bright’s disease, from which he had long been a sufferer.  The deceased was sixty-two years of age and nearly two-thirds of that time he had spent as a merchant in Cartersville, he being among the first citizens of the place.  He was a man of some fine traits of character, of quiet and unostentatious demeanor.  As a friend he was loyal, and as a citizen faithful to every obligation, as a husband and father gentle and kind.  He had been a consistent member of the Baptist church for a number of years.

The funeral services took place at the Baptist church at 1:30 p. m. Tuesday, Dr. H. B. Headden, of Rome, assisted by Rev. W. H. Cooper, officiating.  Dr. Headden delivered a beautiful and touching discourse and paid a high tribute to the noble virtues of the deceased.  The remains were interred at Oak Hill Cemetery.
