    • Dr. A.W. Fesmire was born in 1845 and fell asleep in the arms of Jesus January 25, 1902. He was happily married to Jane Cunningham in 1867 with whom he lived a happy life until death. He professed a hope in Christ at the age of 23 or 24, and soon joined the Methodist Church and was a consistent member until death. We feel that the loss of Dr. Fesmire is one of the greatest our county has ever experienced. He was one of the leading men of his profession and did more than any other, perhaps, for suffering humanity that any other man in our county. He was always ready to go through heat or cold, sleet or rain to admininster to the suffering of his fellow man and was ever kind and pleasant to him. We wish to say to is family and his dear brother, Uncle Johnnie, and stepmother, Aunt Jane, brothers and sisters, to weep not as those who have no hope.
