Carroll County Democrat, June 27 1902

A.T. Butler Dead

After a Long Illness and Much Suffering, He Passes Away

A.T. Butler died at his home in Huntington last Wednesday afternoon about 6 o’clock. Mr. Butler had been sick with some chronic ailment for a long time, and his death had been expected for several days.

“Uncle Alec,” as he was familiarly called, was about 75 years old, a member of the Baptist church, and a christian man useful in his day. He has many friends and relatives in the county who will regret his death and sympathize with his wife and children in their loss.

The burial occurred yesterday at the Humble burying ground after funeral services led by Eld.s Marshall and Newsome Joyner.
