WINDLE, S. W.
Whitsett. We are sorry to chronicle the death of our old friend and fellow citizen,
S. W. Windle, whose demise occurred Feb. 27th, 1896. He was born in Overton county,
Tenn., April 5, 1813, and was married to Mrs. Betsy M. Pertle of the same county in
1839. Their union was blessed with seven children, four boys and three girls, five
of whom survive. He moved to Dent county in 1858, thence to Crawford in 1864 where
he has lived since. He has been justice of the peace for many years which place he
has filled with honor. He has been a member of the Christian church for 58 years.
We extend our sympathy to the family in their sad bereavement.
"Ere sin could harm, or sorrow fade.
Death came with friendly care;
The opening bud to heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there."
