Mr. William H. David, near Mills, an old resident of our county died on Monday of last week. He had been for many years a sufferer from a tumorous affection and for the past few months had been gradually growing worse and death was no doubt looked for by him as a welcome relief from his physical sufferings. The deceased was among the early settlers of the county having come to Freestone from Georgia in early manhood before the war. He was a hard working industrious farmer and a good citizen, a kind father and a warm friend to those he liked. Thus one by one the old familiar faces of the county are passing away. The deceased leaves a large family and many relatives to mourn his loss. Peace to his ashes.
