Therefore be it resolved that Marble Hill Lodge No. 207, F&A.M Marble Hill, Ga. in testimony of its loss, that we tender to the family of our deceased Member our sincere condolence in their deep affliction and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family and published in the Pickens County Progress.
