Mr. Tolbert E. Fowler, of Ideal, Instantly Killed By Gin.

Mr. T. E. Fowler, of Ideal, one of the most prominent, respected and loved men of this section of Georgia, was instantly killed in his gin in Ideal, Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

Mr. Fowler was a leading citizen of his community, kind lovable and charitable. He was the friend of everybody
and loved by all classes. He stood for all that was good and was a power in his community.
The deceased was a successful farmer and business man, and his home life was perfect. He was forty six years of age and was born and reared in the vicinity, where he spent his useful life and met his tragic death.
Mr. Fowler was a consistent member of the Baptist Church, and was always to be found at services.
The deceased is survived by relatives throughout the state and by the immediate family, his widow, who was Miss Mamie Payne, and six children: his father, John B. Fowler, Montezuma; four brothers, J. W. Fowler, Montezuma; C. J. Fowler, Perry, Carl Fowler, Thomasville;
Ernest Fowler, Montezuma and a sister, Mrs. Elmer I. Matthews, Montezuma.

From: THE MARSHALLVILLE NEWS section:

Rev. J. J. Ansley and Dr. John McGehee of Oglethorpe, conducted the impressive funeral service of Donald Barton Frederick. The procession, a long line of carriages and automobiles, was the largest ever seen here, and included friends in every station of life. Masons in regalia, the Sunday School, which he had been superintendent for more than fifty years, and even the old family servants. Exquisite floral tributes attested sympathetic affection, especially beautiful, being a pillow of pink carnations and Easter lilies from the Sunday School, an anchor from his children, wreaths of pink roses and pink chrysanthemums from his grandchildren. The hymns used were favorites of the sainted dead, "Asleep in Jesus". "It Is Well With My Soul," and "Gathering Home". At the grave the Masonic service was led by worshipful master J. O. Booten, F. J. Frederick and H. M. Hargrove with a large gathering of Masons to honor the man who had proven himself a Christian hero in lifes battles.

"Little" Donald King Frederick

The Macon County Citizen - Oglethorpe, Ga. July 5, 1912

From: MARSHALLVILLE NEWS section: Marshallville relatives and friends were greatly shocked and grieved to hear of the death of little Donald King Frederick, the two year old son and only child of Dr. and Mrs. D. B. Frederick on Monday night at 8 o'clock at the residence of Dr. and Mrs. J. E. Paullin of Atlanta. The little fellow had been critically ill at his parents home here for many weeks. It was hoped that a change of climate would help him and a week ago, his father and mother took him to Atlanta. Improvement began and there seemed strong hope for his ultimate recovery until Sunday morning when the disease assumed a more violent form. All that loving hearts and medical skill could suggest was done. But the angels called the little sufferer and he slipped away to the Heavenly Home.
The funeral service was held in Marshallville on Tuesday afternoon. A great profusion of flowers vined the tender sympathy of hosts of friends for the bereaved parents and the love of many hearts for this beautiful child around whom so many hopes had centered and whose bright smile and winsome way won the love of all who knew him.
