Obituary

The community was shocked to learn of the death of Mr. Lorenzo J. Jenkins last Tuesday of heart failure. Very few knew of his illness. He had been in poor health for a time but his death was unexpected. Mr. Jenkins was a soldier of the late rebellion. He had lived on West Hill for years and was a quiet, unassuming citizen. The funeral was held at his late home on Thursday, Rev. M. A. Turner officiating. He leaves a wife and three sons, Edward, Frank and Henry, to mourn his loss.
