The news that flashed over the county yesterday morning of the death the night before of Mr. Amaziah C. Daniel was indeed a shock to his host of friends. He was in his usual health and a quite busy day of it Wednesday looking after the rush work in his crops at home on the Lexington - Athens road near Arnoldsville. After eating supper and preparing to retire, he walked out on the porch and was evidently stricken by heart failure. His death removes from among us a citizen that whom there is none in the county more highly esteemed. The deceased was about seventy years of age and was perhaps the youngest Confederate veteran in the county, he having served one or two years in the latter part of the war as a member of the Tom Cobb Infantry that went from this county. He was not a native of this county, having been reared in Greene County, but in his young manhood married an Oglethorpe girl, a Miss Dillard, and had spent the balance of his life at the home in which he died. His wife preceded him to the grave some years ago and he leaves no children. A sister of Union Point is the only near relative who survives him. At two o’clock yesterday his remains were interred at the Dillard Cemetery near his home. His family has the sympathy of the community.
