Mr. Lafayette Haygood died at the residence of Mr. Henry A. Ditto, near Liberty, on Sunday morning last. For many years the deceased has resided in Louisiana, we are informed, but owing to failing health he returned recently to this, his native county, in hope of getting well, but his disease—malarial fever—was beyond successful treatment. His remains were buried in the cemetery at Liberty on Monday.
On Tuesday night last Miss Lillie McGehee, daughter of Lewis McGehee, departed this life, at the age of about 18 years. It ever gives us pain to chronicle the death of friends and acquaintances, and especially when they are in the blossom of youth. Such was the case of this lamented young lady, whose brief life was closed as above stated. The bereaved parents and relatives of the deceased have the sympathy of the entire community, but alas! Our deepest sympathy cannot heal their lacerated hearts. The only consolation they have is in the belief that she is an “angel now, and with the angels sing.”
On Wednesday, January 18th, 1888, at the residence of Capt. W. Robins, by Rev. M. B. Shaw, Mr. E. N. HANKS, of this county, and Miss M. B. CAIN, of East Feliciana parish, La.
We extend to the young couple our very best wishes for a happy future. May each yearly revolution of the silent wheels of Time unwind to them an unbroken chain of joy and happiness; and may the tender bud of love continue to bloom and shed sweet fragrance, health, wealth and contentment around their happy home.
