Capt. H. S. Crawford, an old citizen, died at his residence near Kingston, Sunday night. He had been quite ill some weeks and it was thought he had entirely recovered. The 19th he started to the picnic at Adairsville in a buggy with his wife, and was taken sick at Hall’s Station and returned home and death claimed him. He was interred on the 24th, at Cassville. Capt. Crawford was so well known in Bartow county it is not necessary for me to attempt to give his history. He was a man possessed of a fine mind; was a quartermaster in the confederate war and expressed a great desire to unite with his old comrades in the picnic given by Adairsville camp U. C. V., last Thursday. One by one the veterans are passing away. He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his loss. We tender to the bereaved ones the sympathies of this entire community.
