       "Last Tuesday evening [9 Jan 1900] occurred the marriage of Miss Vesta Fortson and Mr. J. H, Turnell, of Madison, at the home of Mrs. Susan Rebecca Fortson, on Heard street. The groom came over in the afternoon accompanied by his brother and sister, Mr. and Miss Turnell, and Miss Bearden, of Madison, and Dr. Betha. At 8:30 o’clock the ceremony was performed by Rev. S. R. Belk in a very delightful way in the presence of a goodly number of friends and relatives specially invited. After the ceremony a luncheon was served and the party took the 12 o’clock train for their home in Madison. Mr. Turnell is one of Madison’s strong and popular young business men and his bride is one of the prettiest and most cultured young ladies of the city."4,5

Dr. Thomas Samuel Fortson

M, ID# 5870, b. 20 July 1863, d. 7 November 1911
  • Obituary*: Physician Dies of Wound.
    Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 7.—Dr. T. S. Fortson of Berlin, Ga., who was shot at Moultrie, Ga., yesterday morning by Town Marshall Owens, died this morning on the train which was bringing him to Atlanta for an operation. The wound was in the abdomen.
    The shooting occurred on the streets at Moultrie and is alleged to have been the outgrowth of a prosecution instituted years ago by Fortson against a son of Owens. The Marshal was arrested and placed in jail.11
  • Note*: He was unmarried. He was shot in the abdomen on a Moultrie, Georgia street by the town marshal of Moultrie, apparently over a suit brought years before by Dr. Fortson against one of the marshal's sons and died the next morning while being taken by train to Atlanta for an operation.12,8,9
