A Sad Death.

We have just learned the particulars of the sudden death of Mrs. R. H. Cannon, in Florida, whose remains were brought to the old family burial ground near Stilesboro, for interment last week.  The deceased was hearty and well on the morning of her death, 17th inst., and about ten o’clock she became suddenly ill.  A physician was called in who pronounced her ailment as paralysis, and stated that hers was a serious case.  At one o’clock in the afternoon, just three hours after being stricken, she was a corpse.

Col. Cannon was preparing to leave home the following day for a visit to friends in Bartow, and Mrs. C. was engaged in getting things ready when she became suddenly ill.

The deceased was a most estimable lady and was very popular in her neighborhood.  Her funeral was largely attended by her old friends and neighbors and the deepest sorrow pervades the whole section where she formerly lived.  She was a sister of Mr. Wm. T. Burge, of Stilesboro.
