He was an honest, intelligent gentleman, and one of the magistrates of the county at the time of his death. He will be sadly missed by the community in which he lived. Several deaths have occurred on the south side of the Cumberland river, at the mouth of Barton's Creek, about 18 miles from this city, from cholera morbus.
