Besides a host of friends, four sons, six daughters and many grand-children survive him, among the latter, Sheriff M J Helm, to all of whom the DEMOCRAT extends condolence. We knew deceased quite well, having first met him at his home in the spring of 1884 while seeking the nomination for circuit clerk. He was a fervent democrat and delighted in making known his stanch adherence to democratic principles. He was a member of the Baptist church and as such, was a consistent Christian and has gone on to his reward where “sickness, sorrow, pain or death are felt and feared no more.”
