Mr. J. D. Hulme, aged seventy years, died yesterday morning at his home near Elberton, after a short illness with pneumonia. This announcement will be sad news all over Elbert County. Mr. Hulme had served as jury bailiff at the City and Superior Courts of Elbert for many years and in this way came in close contact with a large number of people, every one of which regarded him not only as a faithful officer, but as a genial friend. He was born in Moss district of Elbert County on August 22, 1837 and died a few miles from the place of his birth.

He was 24 years old and when the Civil War began and he enlisted and fought through scores of the bloodiest battles, surrendering at Appomattox. He was an enthusiastic member of McIntosh camp Confederate veterans, a Mason and a man highly esteemed by friends. He leaves several children and a large family connection. The burial occured today at Vans Creek Church with Masonic Honors.
