Mr. John R. Stutts, a patriarch of Greenhill beat died Monday
morning last, after an illness of 9 days of heart trouble, aged 80 years in
March last. He is survived by his wife,, a sister to our townsman Mr. T. E.
Johns and 6 children: William and Wren Stutts and Mrs. Mary Harrison ,
children of his first wife and Dr. H. L. Stutts, Jesse W. Stutts and Miss Lizzie
Stutts. The interment took place Tuesday morning when a large congregation
attended the solemn services. Mr. Stutts was born and reared in the same
community in which he lived his long life. Probably no man in the county
had a larger circle of kinsmen than Mr. Stutts and it is said of him that he had
probably entertained more people at his hospitable home than any other man in
the county. He was a man of most hospitable and generous impulses and was
never so happy as when he was active as host to those of his large circle of
friends and kinsmen. In his death an old patriarch has passed away.
Peace to his ashes.
