Her Death Sunday Night at Her Home in Atlanta

(Atlanta Constitution)
Mrs. Walker P. Inman, after a lingering illness, died last night at 8:30 o'clock at her residence, 478 Peachtree street.

Mrs. Inman had been desperately ill for a month and had been at the point of death for the past week. She became unconscious last Sunday night and never regained consciousness to the time of her death. During the week the end was expected at almost any time. No hope of her recovery had been entertained during the past month.

She was taken ill last March and had been confined to her bed practically all the while since that time. Mrs. Inman became ill shortly after the death of her son, William Inman, who died on March 21. Her death was due to a complication of diseases.

The deceased was a woman of many noble traits of character and was universally loved. By her kind and genial disposition she had attracted hosts of friends, who extend to the bereaved relatives their deep sympathy.

Mrs. Inman is survived by her husband, Walker P. Inman; two daughters, Mrs. James R. Gray and Mrs. Morris Brandon, of Atlanta, and one son, John Walter Inman, of Augusta, member of the firm of Inman & Co., cotton merchants. She was a sister of the first Mrs. Samuel M. Inman, who died several years ago, and also a sister of Mrs. George H. Hynds, and Mrs. Sarah D. Harris, of Atlanta; Mrs. John A. Smith, of Gainesville, and Mrs. S. W. Graves, of Knoxville, Tenn. Her only surviving brother is S. K. Dick, of Marietta.

Mrs. Inman was in her sixty-third year at the time of her death. She was a native of Dandrige, Tenn., and was formerly Miss Harriet Cordelia Dick. She was a daughter of Jackson Dick and Mrs. Sarah Dick. She was married to Walker P. Inman in the latter fifties. The deceased has a large family connection and is well known in this section. For a great many years Mrs. Inman has been a member and worker in the First Presbyterian church and was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her.
