      The news reached Macon yesterday afternoon of the death of Capt. George F. Cherry, one of the best known citizens of Macon.

      His brother, Mr Dean Cherry, received the news yesterday that he was dead, as was as much surprised as the public, so sudden was the death.He died about 1 o'clock at his farm in Rutland district. He was taken with a congestive chill last Sunday and was seized with another yesterday.

      Capt. Cherry was about forty-six years old. He was first seargent and afterward second lieutenant of the Floyd Rifles of the Second Georgia Battalion, but was afterward transferred to the Forty-Fifth Georgia Regiment, commanded by Col. Thomas Hardeman, on its organisation in 1862. He was afterward major of the regiment, and made a gallant and brave soldier.

      On the reorganisation of the Floyd Rifles after the war, he was elected to the Captaincy. He was sheriff of the county two terms.

      Four years ago he began farming, which occupation he followed up to the time of his death.

      The news of his death will be received with deep regret by his many friends.

      He was worshipful master of Rutland Masonic Lodge, and at the funeral this afternoon several officers and members of Macon Lodge will attend.

      The funeral will take place this afternoon at 3 o'clock.
    • *****************************************

Burke and Dr. J. Emmett Blackshear, conducted the Masonic services at the grave. He was buried in the family burial ground near his late residence.

      The Floyd Rifles went out in full force to pay the last tribute of rspect to their former commander.

      FLOYD RIFLES EXERCUSION
      On the 9th instant the Floyd Rifles will make an excursion to Cumberland Island and will go into an encampment on the Island. They will take with them camp material, tents, mess cheats and everything that will throw around the trip all the appearances and realities of soldier life.

      The company will go under the command of Captain Cherry.

      The Rifles are very busy preparing for the trip, and expect to have a grand time indulging in all the pleasures incident to the coast. While in camp, officers of the day will be appointed and the very pretty ceremony of guard-mounting be executed.

      Very considerable interest is being taken by the members of the company in the contemplated excursion, and nearly the entire company will make the trip.

      Other companies from other places may meet the Rifles, and go into encampment with them.

      The Macon and Brunswick Road has granted special rates to the company with its accustomed generosity, and to enable the company to be accompanied by their friends, have extended invitations, and tickets will be sold to them at very low rates. The tickets will be good for twenty days.

      The company's armory will be open all the week, and the members will rendezvous there from time to time.

(Lunsford Pitts R eese is injured severely in the Civil War, having joined the AL 33rd in Greenville, Butler, A L, and goes to Bonifay, FL, after the war.) This is also the first connection I?ve found t o the Lunsford family (Henry Lunsford), some of whom that went to Texas in the group with Sim eon Dean in 1870 are surely from the same family. Tomalin Reese?s grandmother was Susan Colem an (Andrew Jackson Deens married a Louise Coleman although I do not know if related).

      Yes, I'm glad to see someone connect to our ggrandfather.
      George F. was also in Civil War, if you haven't looked up his records, they are on line, as well. I will contact you by email with some more information. But we were told all of our life and my dad's and aunt's that George F., the sheriff was our ggrandfather, married several times, widowed and lots of children. Your Thomas must be one of them. My gfather (Lawrence or Lorenzo) Dowe Cherry was one of last children.
      George F.'s father is Lemuel from N.C., also told to family. And on these census', you will find him, appears to be one born in 1810, married to Rebecca Dean. George F. was born in 1835 in Ga.

      On Tuesday last at the residence of Dr J. C. Johnson, of Rutland District, Captain George F. Cherry, the efficient sherriff of our county, was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Susie V. Paul, of Rutland District.

      The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. Cosby W. Smith, D.D., of the WEsleyan Female College, in the presence of some of the realatives of the couple and a few friends.

      Several attended the wedding from the city.

      Capatain Cherry was a gallant soldier during the war, and is now sheriff of our county.

      His bride was regarded the belle of the district, and is not only very pretty, but accomplished.

      We wish for them all the joys of happy wedded life.
