      A. J. Harrison, One of County's Oldest Citizens Dies

      A. J. Harrison, on of the oldest and most respected citizens of the Bethlehem section of Barrow county died at his home in that community Monday evening at six thirty o'clock. Death followed an illness of several weeks. Mr. Harrison was eighty three years of age and had lived all his life in the section where he was born and reared. He was a member of one of the oldest and best known families of Georgia and for nearly three quarters of a century had been one of the leading citizens of his section of the state.
      For a long time he had been a loyal member of the Corinth Methodist church and lived his religion in his every day life and in his dealings with his neighbors. He was an outstanding citizen always lending his influence to worthy causes and projects that promised the development on his community and section.
      Funeral services were held from Corinth church Tuesday afternoon at three o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. P. Chandler, a life long friend and Rev. R. E. Lyle, pastor of the Bethlehem Methodist church. One of the largest crowds ever to gather for such an occasion was present to pay a last tribute of respect and love to the deceased. Interment was in the churchyard cemetery with Williams and Cannon Funeral Home in charge of the burial arrangements.
      Surviving Mr. Harrison are his wife and the following nine children: Mrs. G. W. Fuller, Mrs. J. H. Austin, Mrs. J. G. Thompson, and Mrs. H. G. Adcock of Winder; J. T. Harrison of Bethlehem; Mrs. J. E. Holloway, Lexington, Okla., Henry Harrison, Blanchard, Okla; Mrs Calvin Etheridge of Dacula; Lloyd Harrison of Monroe.
      One sister, Mrs. J. H. Beddingfield of Lakemont, also survives.
