“Over The County.”


Winfield Griffin, the little nine year old daughter of Joseph Griffin, deceased, died at the residence of her aunt, Mrs. M. E. Rainey, Sunday evening, July 22nd, and her remains were interred in the Kingston cemetery on the 23d.  Her mother lives in Birmingham, Ala., who was telegraphed to come, but the answer returned that the mother was sick and could not come, and the dear little one had to be put in the silent grave and the broken hearted mother could not be with her in sickness and death.  She had all the attention that a grandmother and loving aunt could give. We tender the sympathies of our community to the bereaved ones.
