Lyon Leroy - few thought last week when this paper mentioned the illness of Mr. Leroy, the librarian, that publication of his death would follow in the next issue. He died on the 22nd after a few days illness. Lyon Leroy was born in Kentucky and resided with an uncle who educated him. He was a graduate of the Georgetown University. Mr. Leroy held a position as Librarian in Kansas City several years after which he came to Baxter and had been in charge of our public library ever since it was started and a better person could not be found for the position. He was 73 years of age, was a veteran of the Civil War in which he had been wounded. He was a member of the G. A. R. [Cheroke County Republican]
