Georgia News Notes
Colonel Jesse L. Blalock, one of the oldest and best known citizens of Georgia, died at his home at Jonesboro a few days ago.  Colonel Blalock was seventy-six years of age at the time of his death and has spent all of his life at
Fayetteville, where he was born, and at Jonesboro.  The Blalock family has resided in that section of Georgia for nearly a century and is among the best in the state.  Colonel Blalock was a lawyer by profession, but of recent
years he has practiced but little, devoting the greater part of his time to his financial interests.  He was possessed of considerable properties in Fayette and Clayton counties, which he looked after with an active interest unusual in
a man of his advanced age.
