Death of Mr. J. N. Griff is.
A long and useful life of more
than four score years was brought
to a close when Mr. J. N. Griffis
peacefully passed away last Thurs
day at the home of his son in the
Cleora section. While remarkably
vigorous for one of his advanced age,
yet the strength of Mr. Griffis has
perceptibly grow:, less and less for
several years. Finally, a short time
ago he was forced to take his ">ed,
growing' weaker and weaker until
the end came. The interment took
place at Berea church Friday after
noon at three o'clock, the funeral
being conducted by Rev. P. B. Lan
ham and Rev. Brooke.
Mr. Griffis' death makes another
vacancy in the steadily thinning
ranks of Confederate veterans. He
made a good soldier in the sixties
and has likewise made a good citi
zen all down through the years. He
was a devout Christian man, one
whose motives, honesty and integ
rity were never questioned. He
may at times have erred in judg
ment-who doesn't-but Mr. Grif
fis never compromised with evil.
He bequeathed but comparatively
little of ttys world's goods to his
two children but has left them a j
priceless heritage in the good name
and untanished reputation that he
bore all through his long and use
Mr. Griffis is survived by his good
wife, who before her marriage was
Miss Margaret Harling, one daughter,
Mrs. J. T. McManus, and one son,
