Following is a transcription of the above person's (TN) obituary from The Tennessee Watchman, Clarksville, Montgomery Co., TN, dated Friday 01/09/1821:

Died--In Nashville on Tuesday last, Doctor James PRIESTLEY, President of Cumberland College.  In the death of this truly learned, virtuous and pious man, society has sustained a loss irreparable.  Though he had been in delicate health for some time past, his death was sudden and unexpected.  His funeral ceremonies were performed on Wednesday last, at the college.
