Death has invaded another happy home and selected as a victim Charles W. Pool, son of Enoch and Winnie A. Pool, of Hiram district. This visit by the enemy was only for a few days he was taken sick Christmas Eve and the ___ of January at 12 o'clock Charly breathed his last. He was born Jan 29th, 1860 at the age of 20 he was married to Miss Nannie Thompson and began life as a farmer, in 1885 he joined the Missionary Baptist church at Poplar Springs, was baptized by Rev. W.A. Ragsdale(?), I sat by his bed and watched death do it's work, he passed off without a struggle, he was stickly speaking moral, his suffering was very graceful, yet he bore it with Christian fortitutde. Thus passed away the Obedient child the God fearing man, the affecitionate father, and a faithful husband, at the age of thirty years leaving a wife and four children. He was buried at Poplar Springs church Monday the 12 after his funeral was preached by Rev. W.A. Ragsdale in the presence of a large congregation of relatives and special friends. I have known Charly from a child he was a good boy. He continued good to manhood and to death and I now say when all is over this path had as few crooken ways as any and I believe he is today with God in conclusion I tender my kindest sympathies to the stricken wife, bereaved parents and friends. ---C.A.P.
