  • Austin Ramsey Dead. -- Mr. Austin Ramsey, an old and respected citizen who lived one mile north of Cookeville on the Gainesboro road, died at his home last Saturday afternoon. Mr. Ramsey had long been a sufferer from rheumatism and other kindred diseases, indeed he has seen but few well days since he returned from the Civil War, in which he was a gallant Confederate Soldier. He was a member of Pat Cleburne Bivouac at Cookeville, also a member of Pat Cleburne Camp U. C. V. He was a member of the Christian Church and received the sacrement of the Lords Supper a few days ago. Mr. Ramsey was a quiet inoffensive citizen, always peaceable and orderly wherever he went. Peace to his memory.
