Mr. Marion Roberts

Paulding New Era
July 12, 1883
Transcribed by: 

Dead.  Mr. Marion Roberts, who made the attempt at suicide by cutting his throat June 30th, while laboring under an attack of mental aberration, and who has been lingering from the effects of the injury ever since, died last Saturday afternoon about 2:30 o’clock, and was buried at High Shoals church on Sunday morning. 

Mr. Roberts was about fifty years old and for many years past a consistent member of the Baptist church.  His surrounding were all that heart could wish.  A good wife, three boys and one girl, bright, beautiful and promising children; a splendid farm and all the equipments to run it.    His rule of life was to owe no man anything, but the maddening fever of the brain came along and one more good citizen has paid the penalty.  The ways of Providence are mysterious to man. 

The bereaved widow and family have the sympathies of sd(?).
