From the Henderson, Tn Newspaper:
Mr. A.H. McKinnon, Jr.
After a lingering illness, on Monday morning last,
Mr. A.H. McKinnon proudly breathed his last at his home in
Henderson. He had been in failing health for several years,
but until the past few weeks, had not been confined to his room.
During all his sufferings, he bore up nobly and was seldom
heard to complain about his lot.
He was a member of the M.E. Church, a constant
Christian and an honest, conscientious gentleman who was
honored and re-spected by all who knew him. He was about
forty years of age, and was never married, but lived with his
widowed mother. His remains were lain to rest Tuesday in
Montezuma cemetery in the presence of a large concourse
of friends. To the breved mother and sisters, we tender our
most heartfelt sympathy.
