Atlanta Constitution - 11/14/1879 - The remains of the late Senator John A. Speer arrived in this city yesterday from Clifton Springs, New York, where the deceased was at the time of his demise. As the funeral services were conducted at Silver Springs, none were held here upon the arrival of the body. The casket containing the remains were met at the depot by Mr. D. N. Speer (Daniel Norwood), brother of the deceased, Dr. R. D. Spalding, Rev. J. W. Heidt, Hon. N. J. Hammond, and a number of other prominent citizens and intimate friends of the deceased. The hearse containing the remins was followed to Oakland Cemetery by quite a number of carriages, in which were many of the most beloved friends of the deceased. At the grave, Rev. J. W. Heidt made a few remarks and offered up a fervent prayer.2
