An Aged Citizen Passes Away

On last Tuesday morning, August 10, occurred the death of Mr. S.R. Gordon, after an illness of several months. Mr. Gordon was 73 years of age and had made Oconee county his home for the last forty years, and we feel that we have lost a good citizen and loyal Christian. He always attended church regularly until his health failed some months ago and was always ready and willing to do whatever he could when called on in church work. He will be greatly missed by his friends and loved ones.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. S.R. Gordon, three sons and four daughters, Messrs. E.R., E.E. and W.E. Gordon, Mrs. O.C. Cooper of Walton county, Mrs. W.E. Parsons, Mrs. Charlie Waters and Mrs. W.R. Nunn, of Covington, thirty grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted at Rays church by Rev. B.P. Read of Athens, and I.J. Lovern, of Bethlehem.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the bereaved family.
