Death of Col. Crawford.

Col. R. A. Crawford, who has been unwell for several weeks at the home of his son Mr. J. A. Crawford in this city, was sufficiently improved to go down to Atlanta. He left here on Tuesday and Wednesday evening a telegram was received that he was dead. Col. Crawford had kept his old confederate uniform and often expressed the desire to be buried in it. His wish was gratified and his remains were brought from Atlanta Thursday, and wrapped in confederate gray and laid to rest at Oak Hill Cemetery.

Col. Crawford was a gallant confederate soldier and fought throughout the war in the First Georgia regulars. He was eighty years old at the time of his death.
