Death of Mr. A. A. Skinner.

We regret to announce in this issue of The Express the death of Mr. A. A. Skinner, which event occurred at his residence last Saturday evening at 6 o’clock, after an illness of several months. The deceased was too well known in this community for us to say anything that would add to his memory, as he became a resident of this place in 1854, when it was but a small village, and has been identified with its business interests for a quarter of a century. He was born in Morgan county March 26th, 1834, and was therefore but a little over 47 years old, and has been a leading member of this church ever since the war and was a steward at the time of his death. He leaves four children, three boys and a girl, besides other relatives, to mourn his loss, his wife having preceded him some 6 or 7 years. As a business man he was known as strict, honest and attentive; as a friend, one who could be relied on in any emergency; as a neighbor, kind and obliging; as a father and husband, devoted to the interests of his loved ones; and he was as strict in religious matters as in secular. Truly, it may be said of him that “whatsoever his hands found to do, he did it with his might.” He will be missed in the business, social and religious world. His remains were interred in Oak Hill cemetery at 5 o’clock, p.m., Sunday, services being conducted by his pastor, Rev. A. J. Jarrell, assisted by Rev. Theo E. Smith, of the Presbyterian church, and were followed by a large concourse of people as was ever assembled in Cartersville on any similar occasion. Peace to his ashes.
