Winn we have lost one of our hard working, industrious citizens and a splendid specimen of an honest man – one of nature’s own noblemen, always obliging and generous, not given to talk as much as work, a silent, clever and first-class citizen, in every way worthy of being called a genuine man Resolved, That we tender the bereaved family our sincere and heartfelt sympathies and condolence in this their hour of sore affliction and severe loss.
He that controls the destinies of all doth all things for the best.
- WM. DAVIDSON,
