LEONARD, Mat - Uncle Mat Leonard, one of the oldest citizens of this county, died at the family home northwest of town Saturday at 4:45 o'clock after an illness of several months. He was first sick in January with the Grippe from which he never fully recovered. After a number of relapses of this malady his system was in a very weakened state and a general complication of diseases was more than his strength could stand. Uncle Mat moved to this country with his parents in 1862, within one mile of the late home. He suffered the bereavement of his wife in 1876, leaving him the care of three small children. He was father and mother to these and succeeded in rearing them for the Glory of God and the betterment of mankind. He leaves a son and a daughter and four brothers to mourn his death. To these the host of friends extend to them their tenderest sympathy and regrets. Mr. Leonard was a brave and gallant soldier of the Confederacy, serving in the armies of Georgia. The funeral was conducted by the Masons Sunday afternoon at Bethel, with the funeral sermon by Rev. McKee, pastor of the Methodist church, of which he has been a member since 1862.
