Another happy home was saddened when the angel of death visited a home in our midst Wednesday morning at five o’clock and took to her bosom the soul of Mr. George Adkison a worthy citizen of Tipton County. Mr. Adkison was born and reared in the Egypt neighborhood, was loved and will be missed by all who knew him. He has been afflicted for 12 long years, but he always bore his pain with patience and a smile, and was never known to complain, no matter how heavy his burden became. He was always true to his country and fellow men. He was always ready to lend a helping and brotherly hand whenever the occasion arose. His untimely death is felt and regretted by many. Mrs. Adkison was 52 years of age, having been born October 1, 1862. He lived a useful Christian life. He is survived by his wife, two brothers, Frank and Jesse, and children; Karl, Mrs. C.
