James Terrell Dead.
Old and Respected Citizen Passes Away Last Week.

James Terrell was born in Virginia, December 24, 1842 and emigrated in early youth with his parents to Bartow county, after stopping a few years in South Carolina, settled near Pine Log, this county, where, on reaching his majority, he married Miss Virginia McMullin, also of Virginia parentage.  To them were born six children, three sons and three daughters.  His wife preceded him to the “Better Land” some thirty-six years ago.  Three sons, Joseph, of Calhoun, Wm. A., of Cartersville and Thomas, of Atlanta, and one daughter, Mrs. Dodd, of Cassville, survive him.  Two daughters died in infancy.  The whole of his active life was spent in this county, the most of it near Cartersville, in the capacity of farmer.

He was a member of the M. E. Church and faithful in attendance so long as he was able.  One who had known him for fifty years told us he had never heard him use a bad word.  He was always quiet and unassuming but unconsciously influencing all for good with whom he associated.  He died Friday evening at 3 o’clock, June 11, 1909, at the home of his son, William, of the infirmities of old age, nearly 87 years of age.  A short service, conducted by Rev. Dr. Dean, was held at the house and concluded at the cemetery, where his remains were laid to rest beside those of his father, Joseph Terrell, who was laid to rest in 1873 while they are awaiting us “Over There.”
