Mrs. Milam had gotten up about midnight to frighten away a dog and so far as known at that time Mr. Milam had shown no signs of illness. Sunday morning Mrs. Milam called her husband and in receiving no reply, laid her hand on his face and found it cold, which led to the discovery that he was dead with his feet hanging off the bed. The conclusion was reached that Esq. Milam was stricken with heart failure at some time between midnight and daylight.  Esq. Milam is survived by his second wife and besides her children, Elmer,Edgar, Luther, and Sam, Jim, Ethel (Mrs. Luther Giles) and Miss Beulah (the first three sons being married), there survive him three of his first set of children, namely, Dr. R.H. Milam of Chesterfield, Mellie (Mrs. Ike Fesmire) and Flora (Mrs. E.L. Fesmire), also of this county. Esq. Milam was a lifelong Methodist (Southern) Democrat and a member of the Masonic fraternity. His remains were interred Sunday in the old family burying ground in the old 7th district, Rev. Teague officiating the funeral. "Hart" Milam, as he was called, was a good citizen, a man who loved his family and friends, his party, his church and the fraternal order to which he belonged. He will be missed in the community in which he lived and his children will honor his memory as it deserves to be honored. He was buried with Masonic honors, C.A.
