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 Sunday afternoon and was con ducted by Dr. J. W. Quillian. 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 death.
