Little One Called to Heaven

Baby Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lanier Dies

Mr. Charles W. Lamar received a telegram yesterday announcing the death of
Marie, the baby daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. H. Lanier in Jackson, Ga.
Many Americus friends of the stricken parents will extend sincerest sympathy
in the loss of their precious one thus called back from earth to heaven.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Marie was the first born of George Huguley Lanier (son of LaFayette Lanier
& Ada Alice Huguley of West Point, Troup Co., Ga/Lanett, Chambers Co.,
Ala) and Marie Lamar (daughter of Charles Winn Lamar and Josephine Elizabeth
Nichols of Americus, Ga). George & Marie were my husband's
Great-grandparents.

After their marriage on February 20, 1904 in Americus, George & Marie
moved to Jackson, Butts Co., Georgia where George was working as Superintendent
of the Pepperton Mills. They moved back to Lanett, Chambers Co., Georgia
1906 to help George's father, LaFayette, run West Point Mfg Co. In 1910,
after LaFayette's death, George became President of West Point Mfg Co
(later West Point-Pepperell, now WestPoint Home).

I have not been able to determine the burial site of Baby Marie. She does
not seem to be buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in Americus, Georgia where the
Lamars are buried, nor can I find her listed at Pinewood Cemetery in West
Point, Troup Co., Georgia where the Laniers are buried. I have been to
both cemeteries and have not found a marker. It would seem that there would
be a marker somewhere, as her families had the monetary means and she was
their first born.
