The surviving ones are Thomas F., William M., Mrs. Mary Hendricks, Mrs. Elizabeth Roberts and T. H. They are all residents of this county but Mrs. Roberts who resides in Kirksville, and were all present at the bedside of their father before his death. Everything was done that loving hands of wife, children, friends and neighbors could do but to no avail. He united with the Christian church early in life, and while conversing with some of his friends a short time before his death he said that he had no fear of death and was ready to go any time. His friends were numbered by the score. He was always kind to those about him, attended to his own business and troubled no one. He was a kind and loving husband, a tender and patient father, he bore his sufferings with the greatest patience hardly ever complaining during his long illness.

The funeral service was held at the Baptist church Monday at 1 o’clock by Bro. Laben McFarland. The floral offerings were very beautiful. There was one of the largest crowds at the cemetery that ever gathered there at a funeral. The Press extends its most sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.
