    The Cairo Messenger 
    • "Death Of A Good Man. Mr. J. H. Powell, a very prominent citizen, of Cyrene, Ga., died in this place at 9:30. a.m. Tuesday last. He had been brought here, for medical treatment of a malignant cancer, from which he had been a great sufferer, for years. But the trouble had proceeded too far, for remedies to do any good, with a man of his advanced age -- seventy-two years.

      Mr. Powell was a fine old time southern gentleman, of that class very few representatives of which are now left on earth -- more's the pity. He served in the confederate army during the war of the sixties, a gallant soldier under Lee, and was seriously wounded in the battle of Gettysburg. He was a very influential citizen of his section, one of the founders (we are informed) of Cyrene Institute, toward which (we hear) he was a liberal contributor, and in his death his entire community will suffer a sad loss.

      He leaves two sons and seven daughters to mourn their bereavement, as well as a host of sadly sympathizing friends."
