Jacob Pirkle, died Forsyth Co., GA, 1863
I am not related to this family, but noticed this while checking this newspaper for other relatives.I thought this might help someone researching this family.
Drowned, on Sunday morning, the 30th of May last, in the mill pond of A.J. James, in Forsyth County, Ga., Jacob Pirkle, of some 15 summers, son of Mrs. Sarah Pirkle.How sudden does life become extinct by one unguarded step, of jumping into deep water by one that cannot swim.
