Death of Patrick Grant.
Patrick Grant, probably the
best known stone mason in this
county, died at the county farm
last Saturday night, after being an
inmate of the poor asylum for two
weeks. The funeral occurred

Pat Grant was a native of Ire
land, and had resided in Newnan
for thirty years or more. He was
an expert in his trade and a
thoroughly reliable workman. He
was an intelligent man, and had
many friends among the people of
the city and county, all of whom
are genuinely sorry to learn of his
