Tillman, George W. 24 May 1850 - 3 Aug 1911 CCR 11 Aug 1911

In Memoriam

After an illness of three months, George W. Tillman departed this life at his residence, on the evening of August 3rd, 1911, in the sixty-second year of his life. The funeral services were held at the Carter Cemetery, on Aug. 5th. A great concourse of people were assembled. Rev. Melton was expected to preach the funeral sermon but, owing to an accident, to the disappointment of many, he was unable to be present. The serious exercises of the occasion were brief and simple, benefiting the earthly life of the deceased. Reading of the 25th Psalm, prayers and remarks by a friend of Mr. Tillman constituted the service. Few men, in the ordinary walks of life have, at its close, attracted by so much neighborly respect as Mr. Tillman, The instances are rare indeed where such a measure of devotion and love were shown to the father by the sons and daughter. It is a bright spot in all the annals of one’s life to see such devotion manifested by the bereaved wife and the equally bereaved sister and by all the large family of sons and daughters. They were all paying back the love of a father for his family through all his life. Mr. Tillman was a faithful man, putting so much good work and conscience into his calling that every basket he made and sent away, preached a sermon of honesty and fair dealing - faithful in the smallest as well as the greatest matters. Not widely known, personally, not much money, not much property, but leaving to his family the priceless possession of character - an inheritance more precious than silver and gold. The pall bearers at the cemetery were William Wade, Leslie Atkins, Thomas Burnett, Charles Carter, Frank Cornog and Ralph Golden. These few lines were written as [no more copied]
