Mr. William Cox, Beloved Pioneer Dies, Home Here
Funeral services for Mr. William Cox, 60, beloved Bartow County pioneer, who died at his home near Cartersville Sunday following a short illness, were conducted Monday afternoon at two o’clock from the Macedonia Church. Rev. Raymond Banks assisted by Rev. Howard Cordell, officiated in the presence of many sorrowing relatives and friends.
Interment was in the Macedonia Cemetery, Owen Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
Mr. Cox was one of Bartow County’s best known
farmers, enjoying the confidence of a legion of friends. He was widely
related to many well-known families in this section, and only recently
was honored at a family reunion held at his home.
A member of the Baptist Church, Mr. Cox was active in all church affairs and for the past several years was a deacon in the Center church. Kind and faithful to his friends and a devoted husband and father, Mr. Cox will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
Besides his wife, he is survived by five sons, Messrs. Nat, Stanley, Lee Roy, Wesley and Harold Cox; three daughters, Misses Anna and Lottie Mae Cox, and Mrs. Ben Woods; one brother Mr. John Cox, of Tulsa, Oklahoma; two sisters, Mrs. Jim Hite, of Dallas, and Mrs. Jack Harris of Cartersville. A number of grandchildren also survive.
Friends extend tenderest sympathy to members of the bereaved family in their hour of great sorrow.
