Death of Mr. Barnes

The death of Mr. William C. Barnes, which occurred on Monday morning, 10 th inst., between four and five o’clock, is deeply regretted by his friends and acquaintances in Cartersville. Mr. Barnes won the esteem and endeared himself to those with whom he came in contact, by his gentlemanly qualities and affable manner. He came from Jacksonville, Fla., only a short time ago, with the hope that a change of climate would benefit his health, but as the days passed by his friends could see the hand of death slowly stealing upon him. For several weeks he had been confined at home and his death was expected, and on Monday, surrounded by his relatives and friends his spirit winged its flight to the God in whom he professed implicit faith.

Mr. Barnes was born on December 3d, 1866, and would have been twenty-nine years of age this year. He was married to Miss Maria Louise Smith, of Jacksonville, Fla., on May 23d, 1892, and his wife and one little one survive him. His brothers, sister and two aunts recently moved to Cartersville from Senoia, Ga., and to them his death is a deep bereavement.

The funeral services were conducted Tuesday morning at the home of the deceased by Rev. E. D. McDougall who was assisted by Rev. W. H. Patterson, after which the interment took place at Oak Hill cemetery.

Mr. Barnes was a member of the order of Knights of Pythias who acted as pall bearers, and they feel the loss of a dear friend and brother.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.
