Charlie Dobbs Dead.
Remains of Well Known Telegrapher Brought Here For Burial.

Mr. Charlie Dobbs died last Friday at the home of his sister, Mrs. Todd, in Rockmart, and the remains were brought here Saturday.  The funeral was conducted from the residence of Mr. John Dobbs Sunday, conducted by Rev. Mr. Harris, of Rockmart and Rev. H. B. Mays, of this city.  Interment took place at Oak Hill cemetery.

Charlie was a brother of John and Will Dobbs, of this city, and was a son of the late Mr. John M. Dobbs, who died several years ago.  He was born and reared in Cartersville.  When he was about 16 years of age he learned telegraphy and worked it for many years with the Western Union and Postal Telegraph companies at this place.

About eight years ago he married Miss Georgia Hobbs, of Jesup, Ga., who survives him and also a little son, Charlie Winton Dobbs, five years old.

Charlie was 34 years of age, and was a young man of splendid traits and had many friends everywhere he lived.

About eight weeks ago Mr. Dobbs left Bainbridge, where he was located with the Western Union Telegraph Company, and decided to visit his sisters at Rockmart, in the hope that a change might be beneficial to his health, he having contracted tuberculosis.
