We sympathize with the family of Mr. J. U. Colvard, whose death occurred Monday afternoon. He was a Confederate soldier and one of Bowman's most highly respected citizens. He was buried Tuesday. He had been a member of Holly Springs Baptist Church since boyhood and his life was an exemplary one. He was 73 years old and is survived by two sons and one daughter. Messrs W E and J V and Miss Roba Colvard.
