D. and Roy, of Murphysboro, Ill.  The end came very unexpectedly as he was dressed and out in the yard in the morning and died in the afternoon.  Although he had complained of not feeling well and assuring the family that soon he would be in heaven, yet it was hard to realize that conditions were quite so serious.  His death was due to hardening of the arteries.  He was conscious till the very end and his passing was as peaceful as the falling to sleep of a child.  He united with the Missionary Baptist church of Bellview, Mo., over 50 years ago.  Funeral services were conducted at the residence in St. Louis by Rev. E. L. Pinkerton of Immanuel Baptist church after which the remains were shipped to Ironton, Mo., where a brief service was conducted at the Baptist church by pastor, Rev. A. B. Bush, after which the body was conveyed by motor to Eidson cemetery at Belleview.   Within a stone's throw of his last resting place stands the ruins of an old log dwelling, the palce of his birth.  Being of a friendly and jovial disposition his friends were numbered by the scores.  He died, as he lived, peacefully and with and abiding faith in his God and Saviour.
