Aged Man Passes Away

On last Monday morning at his home on Blountsville, route 2, Samuel Rogers, aged 78, and one of Blount's highly esteemed citizens, passed away after an illness of two months with paralysis. Mr. Rogers was indeed a good man,, and his death has cast a gloom over the community in which he lived and where he was universally loved. The funeral was held Tuesday near Bangor and his remains were tenderly laid to rest. The Journal joins in extending sympathy to the bereaved.
