Revs Goff, Cage and Carpenter each paid a glowing, and richly deserved, tribute to his memory. The funeral was largely attended and the floral offerings numerous and very beautiful, mute testimony of the great love and esteem in which he was held by his fellow citizens. Besides the wife and four children, deceased is survived by one brother, Phil., of Chandler; and a member of other relatives in North Carolina and Missouri. Phil. Is the last surviving member of the thirteen children. [Date: April 10, 1930 - submitted by Sherri Hale]
