(note: much more not copied...)
The end, while not entirely unexpected, came suddenly, as it was thought that his condition was unchanged from what it had been for several weeks, and it was while a young lady friend, who had dropped in to see him, was playing and singing for him , at his request, the song "Lord I'm Coming Home" that he peacefully dropped out, and this song was again rendered by a mixed quartette at the grave services. In addition to the grief stricken widow, who before her marriage was, Miss Lydia Kleckley, he is survived by one daughter, Miss Willie Ruth English; one sister, Mrs. Etta Royals of Ellaville and three brothers, Mr. W.

FUNERAL SERVICES FOR MISS HELEN ENGLISH
Oglethorpe, Ga. Nov. 23, Funeral services for Helen English, thirteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. English of Quitman, who died at her home at 5;30 Saturday morning, were held from the Lutheran Church here at 3 pm Sunday, conducted by Rev. Chas. A. Phillips of Mooresville, N.C. a close friend of the family, who was assisted by Rev. D. L. Heglar. Strickened with that incurable type of blood poison, she was ill only four days, and while everything humanly possible was done to save her life, it was realized hours before the end came that there was no hope. As a child, she had always visited Oglethorpe frequently, where she has a number of relatives and was one of the most lovable girls of her age the community knew, always being a favorite with both old and young alike. She was a member of the Lutheran Church here, a student of the Quitman High School, and her untimely passing came as a shock to both communities. Perhaps no death in recent years has caused more genuine sorrow and the services were attended by many citizens, both of this city and Quitman, many of whom were heard to say that in her passing they were reminded again, "That God Often Plucks His Choicest Flowers". In addition to her parents, she is survived by one brother, George English, who is a student at Lenoir-Rhyne College, of Hickory, N.C. and several near relatives of this city. Interment was at the city cemetery and the services were in charge of the S.G.McCowan co. of Quitman. The pall bearers were also young Quitman friends, who had been closely associated with her during her entire life.

DEATH OF MRS. BETHIA ENGLISH [By Mrs. Mary Belle Powers] Oglethorpe, Ga. May 11, Just as twilight deepened into darkness Friday evening, May 5th, the brittle cord which bound the soul of Mrs. Bethia English to earth was snapped asunder, and the golden chain which linked congenial minds and kindred spirits was severed. Though she had been in enfeebled health for sometime, the message, "Grandmother English is dead", affected us differently than the report that she was ill and gradually sinking to the tomb. But the transition from life to death was so peaceful that those who watched at her bedside realized that it was a blessed exchange from earth to heaven. she has been freed from the cares, toils and anxieties of life, and in their stead, gained peace, rest and joy unspeakable. She passed away in a good old age, being in their 86th year, like a shock of grain, fully ripe for the harvest, she has been gathered home to enjoy "The rest that remaineth for the people of God." Mrs. English, who before her marriage was Miss Bethia Moodye was a pioneer citizen of Oglethorpe and from her wonderful memory and her beautiful flow of language one gained much valuable information, and never tired listening to her tell of the balmy as well as the disastrous days of old Oglethorpe. Indeed, this long, useful, remarkable, life has had an eminent part in the making of Macon County, the county she loved so well. She will be missed, but the afterglow of such a life is always bright. She was a faithful member of Red Hill Primitive Baptist Church and loved to attend the services of her church, but was liberal and unbiased toward other churches. In 1875 she married Mr. Matthew English, who preceded her to the grave several years ago. She leaves one step-son, Mr. R. B. English of Americus, three sons, M. H. English, J. R. English and S. J. English, all of Oglethorpe, one step-daughter, Mrs. Bettie Kleckley of Oglethorpe, one daughter, Mrs. Dan Kleckley with whom she made her home, a number of grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. She was laid to rest Saturday P.M. in the Oglethorpe Cemetery in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. Many beautiful floral offerings attest the love and esteem in which she was held. In the absence of her pastor, the funeral obsequies were conducted by Rev. D. L. Hedlar, pastor of the Lutheran Church.

MISS C. V. KLECKLEY ANSWERS SUMMONS
Oglethorpe, Ga. - July 13, - Many hearts in Oglethorpe and vicinity were saddened Tuesday morning, July the 11th when it became known that Miss Val Kleckley, as she was familiarly called, had passed, at her home near Oglethorpe.
For many years she had been in failing health but this indisposition did not check her from duties or bar her from fellowship, for she like to mingle with her relatives and friends. Just the day before her death, she made a visit to a sick neighbor. On returning home, she seemed a little more indisposed than usual, but no one realized her grave condition until early Tuesday morning when death came silently and peacefully and freed her from the shackles of a frail body, and from the cares and anxieties of life, to live in a higher realm where there is no suffering, and where cares and anxieties are unknown. Miss Val united with the Evangelical Lutheran Church early in life, and was confirmed to Mt. Zion Church where her great grandfather the Rev. Jacob Kleckley preached and labored so long, and like her worthy sire, she was noted for her kindness and generosity. She was the youngest daughter of the late John L. Kleckley and Caroline Daniel Kleckley. Her parents preceded her to the grave several years ago. She leaves one brother, Dan Kleckley of Oglethorpe, two sisters, Mrs. Mattie English of Oglethorpe and Mrs. Lydia English of near Oglethorpe with whom she made her home. The funeral services were conducted at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church by her pastor, Rev. D. L. Heglar and her body laid to rest in the Church yard near by amid a concourse of relatives and friends. The pallbearers were her nephews, Henry Joe Kleckley, Fred Kleckley and Moodye Kleckley, Frank Easterlin, Roy English and Henry B. English.
