One week before he came to Chattanooga to visit his wife and the family of his brother-in-law, John T. Moseley, on East Fifth street. The trip to Chattanooga was made from a considerable distance, Mr.. Livingston having taken a sudden notion that he should come home. When here he was apparently in perfect health and in jovial mood. News of his serious condition was telegraphed here last Saturday and his wife of ex Chief of Police Moseley, started at once for Gulfport. The a????? man never regained consciousness.

He was for many years one of the Nashville’s business men, and considered that city his home, although his wife spent a greater portion of her time with her sister in this city.

The body will reach Nashville some time today and interment will be in mount Olivet cemetery in that city. Funeral arrangements have not been completed.

During his residence in Chatanooga (sic) Mr. Livingston was connected with several of the large hardware houses at various times, and was well known throughout the city.

Mrs. J. T. Moseley left for Nashville yesterday to attend the funeral.
