Mrs. John Turhune

The Cartersville Express
Cartersville, Georgia
June 17, 1869, page 2
Transcribed by:  

Mr. John Turhune, living near the line of Bartow and Floyd counties, happened to the sad double misfortune of getting his dwelling burned, a few days since, whereupon, from the fright caused by the fire, his wife being in delicate health, immediately expired.  This very unfortunate circumstance, we are credibly informed, leaves Mr. Turhune in a very destitute condition.  Very nearly everything he had to rely upon to make a crop was burned—not even a bed quilt or blanket was left him.  His friends and the friends of humanity are making an effort to aid him in his extremity.  Any amount any one may wish to contribute to aid this poor unfortunate family, if forwarded, to Col. J. C. Roper, at Kingston, will be safely delivered to the afflicted ones.
