Two Deaths at Cassville.

Mrs. E. W. Chunn and Mr. John K, Haynes Pass Over the Great River.

On Wednesday the 11 th inst., Mrs. E. W. Chunn, died at the home of the later at Cassville, in her seventy-fourth year. Mrs. Chunn has been a widow since 1862, and since that time has made her home with her only child, Mr. W. A. Chunn. She has been a member of the Methodist church since she was eight years old, and all of her long life has been devoted to the cause of Christian work. She moved to Cassville with her husband from east Tennessee, in 1845, and has made that place her home for about fifty years. Her remains were laid to rest at the Cassville cemetery on Thursday evening.

A good Christian woman full of years and full of faith, has been transferred to her celestial home. She organized and was president of the Cassville Ladies’ Memorial Association and devoted her time and means to the keeping of the memories and the graves of our fallen braves fresh and green. An obituary notice will be published later.

ON Wednesday of last week, Mr. John K. Haynes, of Rome, who was visiting his daughter, Mrs. G. H. Headden, at Cassville, died at her home of congestion of the lungs. He had been sick for some time and thinking that a change would probably prove beneficial, came over from Rome about ten days before his death, but continued to decline and breathed his last on Wednesday.

Mr. Haynes was about fifty five years old, and leaves a wife, who is a sister of Dr. W. C. Griffin, of this city, and six children, two of whom are married. He was buried at Cassville on Thursday evening.

He was for a number of years a resident of Gordon county, and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends.
