A Sad Death.
Mr. Henry P. Ford is Attacked with Lockjaw and Dies.

Mr. Henry P. Ford, of this city, after an illness of nearly two weeks died last Monday morning at 5 o’clock. Mr. Ford met with an accident on Tuesday, the 8th inst., which terminated in his death. He was sitting on a fence when one of the rails broke, precipitating him to the ground and resulted in the breaking of his right arm just above the wrist, at a place which had before been broken. The hurt was a decidedly painful one, but nothing serious was expected from it. The member was set and it was thought the patient was getting along all right until last Thursday when he experienced a violent contraction of the muscles of the jaw. The best medical aid could do him no good and he suffered much agony until Monday morning when he died.

Mr. Ford was about thirty five years of age, and for the past few years has been engaged in the mercantile business on the upper end of Tennessee street. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn their loss. He was a brother to Col. F. M. Ford, Messrs. Ed and John Ford and Mrs. R. W. Satterfield, of this city. For the past eighteen months he has been a faithful and consistent member of the Baptist church of this city.

The remains were interred in Oak Hill cemetery last Tuesday morning at 9:30 o’clock, the services being conducted at the grave by Rev. W. H. Cooper, assisted by Dr. W. H. Felton. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of all in their affliction.
