JOHN RILEY WOODS - On last Sunday the 16th Inst., At 2 O'clock P.M., occurred the death of Esquire John R. Woods at his home about four miles east of this place. Me woods was one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of this county, and one who will be greatly missed, not only in his immediate neighborhood, but throughout this entire county, as he has always been a prominent figure in the history of Benton County, both past and present. The deceased was born in Carroll County, TN. on Aug. 1st, 1828-consequently was 72 years old on the 1st day of last August-and came with his parents to this county in 1837, where he has resided continuously ever since. In 1858 Mr. Woods was elected Sheriff and Ex-Officio collector of this county and in 1860 was elected County and Ex-Officio Circuit Court Clerk and Ex-Officio Recorder, being re-elected to the latter office in 1862. For many years he has been one of the Justices of Peace for this (Osage) Township, and although he had never sought the position he has been re-elected with each successive election for years past, until the last election when his name was dropped from the ticket on account of his physical condition. He was ever a strong and popular Democrat. The deceased was never a member of any church organization, but nevertheless was a very honest, upright, moral and useful citizen, and a better, kindlier neighbor than he could not be found anywhere. In fact his whole life is worthy the emulation of anyone, and the world is better and brighter for the many good deeds that he has done. The death of Mr. Woods was not unexpected. He had been almost helpless for about two years, but has borne his afflictions with remarkable fortitude. The immediate cause of his death, we understand, was due to paralysis of some of the vital organs. Notwithstanding, however that his death had been momentarily expected for some time past. The blow is a heavy one to the members of his family and the large circle of relatives and friends, to whom we extend sympathy. The funeral took place on last Monday afternoon, Reverand P. Carnahan officiating, and the remains were laid to rest in the Woods Cemetery near the home of the deceased, in the presence of one of the largest gatherings ever seen at an interment in this country.

Peace to his ashes. Benton County Democrat 12-20-1900 Another Obituary: Died at his residence five miles east of Bentonville, December 16th, 1900. John R. Woods, age 72 years, five months and 16 days. The deceased was born in Carroll Co., Tenn., July 1st, 1828. He moved with his parents to Polk County, Mo. in 1836 and the following year to Benton County, Ark. He was 9 years of age when his parents located two miles east of Bentonville and with them he remained until about 22 years of age. Nov. 14th, 1849 he was married to Margaret Ann Woods, a daughter of Samuel P. and Eliza G. (Dickson) Woods. To them were born 14 children, 9 of whom are living, all well and favorably known. On April 9th, 1882 his wife died and on Jan. 9th 1884 he was married to Jennie Ellis, daughter of David and Margaret Ellis. To them was born one child, an amiable and promising boy now living under the tender care and caresses of mother, brothers and sisters. Mr. Woods had filled the Offices of Sheriff and Ex-Officio Collector and Ex-officio Circuit Clerk and Ex-Officio Recorder of Benton County, being elected twice to the last named office. For many years he has been one of the Justice of the Peace of Osage Township, his name being successfuly kept before the people as long as his health would permit. His whole official life and conduct gave general satisfaction. He was one of our most honorable and upright citizens, defending and supporting the right and condemning and opposing the wrong. He was not a member of the church yet he fully believed in the church, continually and materially supporting it. His reason for not uniting with the church as given by himself was that he was not good enough. His last moments were peaceful and his funeral escort was one of the largest that I ever witnessed in this country. Peace to his ashes. P. Carnahan, Pastor
