John Holloway, 80, a widely known colored resident of Marietta, was found dead in his hut beyond the Marietta Paint & Color Co.'s factory in Norwood, Saturday morning. Coroner Green was called and upon investigation pronounced death due to troubles incident to old age.
The deceased was a familiar character about Marietta. He was for years engaged in hauling garbage and rubbish for residents in the city, and was known as "Boss." He was a former slave and had spent a great part of his life here. He lived alone.
The remains were taken in charge by undertakers Doudna & McClure. No arrangements have as yet been made for the funeral and burial.
