Rest Up, Mr. J. J. Tinley (Soldier Saturday)

A few days ago, I received a nice email from Mr. Dennis Roland, providing an obituary for a Find-A-Grave memorial I created almost six years ago for Joshua J. Tinley. I posted it to the memorial, of course, and now here.

In Memory Of My Husband
Joshua J. Tinley
Dec 5, 1841
May 19, 1907
At Rest

Liberty United Methodist Church Cemetery
Bibb County, Georgia


Mr. Joshua J. Tinley died at his home in Rutland district Sunday morning at senven [sic] o'clock after an illness of only a few days.

He was one of Bib [sic] County's best known citizens and farmers and was a man of refined gentle manner. He was beloved by the entire community in which he lived. Mr. Tinley was a Confederate veteran and was a gallant soldier, having served throughout the Civil War with the exception of nine months, being a prisoner for that time at Lookout Point, Maryland, until the surrender of the Confederate army. He is survived by his wife and two children, Mrs. P. H. Comas and Mrs. Jno. C. Ellis.

The funeral will take place at his late residence, known as "Rest Up," deriving its name from his numerous friends who always sought his home for a pleasant recuperation, this afternoon at 3 o'clock. He will be buried with Masonic honors by the Rutland Lodge, F. A. M., being a Past Master of that lodge. Interment at Library [sic] Chapel Cemetery.
