Mrs. F. L. Walthall
On Monday 16th inst., death again made an unexpected visit to the little village of Wrothville, and this time removing from its ranks Mrs. F. L. Walthall, a devoted and kind hearted wife and mother. Mrs. Walthall had many friends in whose estimation she was held with the highest degree of reverence. She had been confined to her bed with typhoid fever only about two weeks prior to her death. Our Sympathies are extended to the bereaved relative and friends of a lady whose vacancy cannot be filled. (Middle Ga Argus – Week of June 24,1890)
Miss Bradley Ward
The death of Miss Bradley Ward which occurred at her home in Dublin district last Sunday removes from our county one of its most charming and lovable women. Miss Ward has been an invalid for some time prior to her death and on this account the sad event was not unexpected.
Miss Ward had many friends in Jackson. She was a special friend of Mrs. H. L. Daughtry where she has frequently visited and here in Jackson her death is a cause of sadness.
Miss Ward was the daughter of the late B. F. Ward, a man who was very popular in his day and a representative from Butts county to the state legislature when the capital was at Milledgeville. At the time of her death Miss Ward owned the old homestead and lived thereon. The old home place is, by the way, of historic interest. It was the home of the now famous McIntosh and when he deeded this section to the pale faces he reserved this magnificent old home place which is one of the finest farms in the state.
Flem Ward of Jasper and Ben Ward of Butts are brothers of the deceased.
Miss Ward is a member of the Baptist church at Cork and was a consistent Christian. She was buried at Monticello.
A noble Christian woman has gone to her reward.

Mr. Watkins has always been known as a straight forward, upright and strictly honest man, and by his close attention to his chosen calling – a tiller of the soil – had emassed a considerable fortune. He released a large number of children, the youngest of whom is grown, all of who like their father, are industrious upright citizens. His remains were held away in the family burying grounds near his home on yesterday, Rev. J. T. Kimbell conducting the funeral. Mr. Watkins, at the time of his death, was in his seventy fourth year. (Middle Ga Argus – Week of January 28, 1890)
Alford M. Watkins
Our heavenly Father, in His wisdom and love, saw fit on January 26th, 1890 to take him from us.
Six months ago little did we think that we should have a vacant place in our hearts, and made vacant by the angel of death. Little did we think that eh form of our dear father would o soon be laid to rest in the cold and silent grave.
He was a devoted to his wife and children. He loved them with a pure and holy love. It was one of the greatest pleasures of his long life to make them happy. Father is gone! Yes gone! But God knew best which would be to his happiness, life, or death. We may have been selfish to have wanted him to stay, but God said no, and humbly we should bow and say “Thy will be done.” Father we shall miss you sadly, but we would not call you back; oh, no! thou hast suffered enough. Farewell until He calls us to join the, Oh God, fill the aching void Thou hast put into our hearts. Thou and Thou alone can give the comfort we need. May God abide with his wife and children and comfort them the remaining time which they must linger here and finally when their days are ended, may He take them to where their father is waiting and watching for them.
Dear father, thou hast passed away. Now lonely you sleep in the clay, and the silent stars are nightly weeping o’er thy grave, since death hath borne your spirit away. We too, will hear the same command when our lives on earth are over, May you be the angel hand to pull us onto the other shore.
His daughter, Amanda.

Mrs. Evans Watkins
We are pained to learn of the death of Mrs. Evans Watkins who died yesterday. She was young and her life was one of Christian influence. She was buried today. (Jackson Progress - Week of September 13, 1895)
Another of the old land marks of Butts county has fallen and as the leaves one by one lose their hold upon the tree which bore them, so does man one by one pass off of the state of action. "Uncle Billie," as everybody knew and mentioned him, had many friends as was evidence by the large concourse of people who followed his remains to their last resting place. Mr. Weaver was a member of the Baptist church in Jackson, and a bright Mason. He was buried at Macedonia church at Stark, where his first wife was laid to rest. Rev. J. T. Kimbell preached the funeral sermon and made some very touching remarks, having been the personal friends of deceased since young manhood. Mr. Weaver was the father of Mrs. J. F. Carmichael and Mr. Joe Weaver, of Jackson. He has other children whose names we do not know. He leaves a young and affectionate wife, also to mourn his death. All the relatives and friends have our sympathy in their bereavement. (Jackson Argus - Week of March 18, 1897)

Aunt Sarah Wilkinson
There has not been a death in this town for years more universally regretted than that of "Aunt Sallie." Our own people loved her, our country people regarded her as the most useful woman in Jackson, and the traveling public always felt welcome when they saw her smiling face. At the time of her death she was 57 years old. She was born in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, but has been in Georgia a great while. She has been in the hotel business 18 years, been married 26 years, and has been a consistent member of the Methodist church for 30 years. The bereaved ones, Uncle Alex Wilkinson, the husband and Mrs. J. W. Jones, the daughter has the sympathy of the entire country. There is no one living who knew Aunt Sallie but who cherishes her memory as a friend. (Jackson Argus - February 22, 1895)

Aunt Susan Williams
The subject of this notice died at the home of Mr. Thomas Mangham, several weeks since, and was 85 years old. She was a member of the Jackson Baptist church many years, and was supported by it for several years before her death. For the last fifty years she lived a consistent, Christian life. The greater part of her life was spent in the family of Mrs. Harkness, mother-in-law of Mr. Z. T. Buttrill, with whom she lived several years after the death of her first benefactress, and finally was supported by the church as stated, which gave her a decent burial at the old Patterson family cemetery. She told friends several years since that she desired to be buried there.
Everybody who knew her history and had seen her correct walk for half a century before her death regarded her a Christian lady, and we believe she is today in a happy home with the redeemed.
(Jackson Argus - Week of July 12, 1895)
Mrs. Arretus Wilson
Mrs. Arretus Wilson of Sandy Ridge died at her home on Saturday of last week. Her funeral was preached at Sardis on Sunday by Rev. J. W. Beck. Mrs. Wilson leaves three small children, which alone makes her death exceedingly sad. She had been sick only a few weeks with typhoid fever, of which she died. The husband, children and other relatives of the deceased have our sincere sympathy.
(Middle Ga Argus – Week of November 1,1887)
Just as we go to press we learn of the death of Mr. Billie Wilson, an old citizen of this county, which occurred on yesterday. His remains will be laid away at Sardis today and Rev. E. M. Hooten will preach the funeral. Mr. Wilson has long been a citizen of Butts and his friends were all who knew him. (Middle Ga Argus – Week of July 16, 1889)
Mrs. T. C. Wise
Died at 1 o’clock, p.m. October the 22nd, 1887, at the residence of her only son, Elder W. T. Godard, Mrs. T. C. Wise, aged sixty-six years, the day she died. She had been a constant sufferer from acute rheumatism and caner of the breast since last October. The two last months she lived her death was looked for daily.
The deceased received a good hope in Christ in early life. Forty-seven years ago, last April, she united with the Primitive Baptist church at County Line, and was baptized by her father-in-law, elder Joseph Godard. From that time to her death her entire life was lived as but few live. She was universally loved and respected by all who knew her. At her death she was a member of Liberty Primitive Baptist church. She was buried at County Line cemetery, on the 23rd inst, and her funeral was preached by Dr. I. L. Gumer, by and in the midst of a host of weeping relatives and mourning friends. But the great abundance of Christian evidence left by her, make us all believe that our earthly loss is her heavenly gain. May we all live and die as she did, then we’ll meet beyond the strand. One Who Loved Her. (Middle Ga. Argus - Week of November 1, 1887)
Major Wolihin Dead
Maj. A. M. Wolihin died at his home in Macon on the night of the 22nd inst after an illness of about two months.
Maj. Wolihin enjoyed an extensive acquaintance among the Masons of the state and especially of this section. He has visited Jackson and rendered valuable services in conferring Masonic degrees. The brethren her regarded him as one of the grandest old men in the order and his death causes much sadness.
He was a consistent member of the Baptist church, having accepted that faith many years ago. As a Mason Major Wolihin took second place to none in his love and enthusiasm for the order. For the past ten or twelve years he was the grand secretary of the order and performed the duties of that office as a work of love. He loved the order for its ennobling effects on mankind and no man did more than he to help keep up its high teachings. Major Wolihin was also grand secretary of the grand chapter of Georgia of Royal Arch Masons and deputy inspector general of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Thirty Third degree of Scottish Rite Masons. In his daily walk he practiced charity and benevolence towards his fellow man and although one of the most courageous of men he was as gentle as a woman. Those who knew him best loved him most. No man had more warm personal friends that he and the announcement of his death will be learned with profound regret through the jurisdiction of Georgia.
(Jackson Argus - Week of February 17, 1897)

N. H. Woodward
We, your committee appointed to draft resolutions upon the death of Companion N. H. Woodward beg leave to submit the following:
We have been called to mourn the loss of Companions, we have been called to reflect upon their lives and characters. None are more beautifully typical of the virtues taught and principles promulgated by our order than shown forth in the life and character of Companion N. H. Woodward. While from feebleness and age he was prevented from being with us at our regular convocations as often as he desired, yet it was always a source of great pleasure to him to meet his Companions and converse with them upon the subject of masonry. Ever evincing the warmest regard of the order and his Companions. His was a blameless life, and we can cheerfully recommend his example to all Companion Royal Arch Masons as worthy our respect and love. Therefore:
Resolve, that we recognize the Will of God as just and wise in all things, and that in thus removing our Brother and Companion it was for his eternal gain.
That these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of Chapter and that a blank page be left to his memory and that a copy be furnished the family of the deceased and published in the Middle Georgia Argus. Y. A. Wright, S. McKibben, W. S. Henley – Committee
(Middle Ga Argus – Week of September 10, 1889)
