Mr. Jesse Mercer Leard passed away at his home near Bowersville Sunday night at 9:30 after suffering with influenza for about two weeks. Mr. Leard was 84 years of age and had been active all his life till the recent illness carried him away. Funeral services for Mr. Leard were held at the Leard home on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. Nellie Mann Opdale of Canon. Interment was in the Bowersville Cemetery. The pall bearers were: Lecel A. Leard, Claude Leard, Myron R. Leard, children of Horton Leard and George Leard, grandchildren of Mr. Leard. Mr. leard was born in Hart County near Redwine Church on November 28th, 1851. He spent his early years in Hart County around the old Leard Homestead. In 1876 he was married to Miss Margaret Johnson of Hart County who has been his faithful companion since and still survives, although in feeble health at present. Mr. Leard moved to his present home 54 years ago. Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Leard, five of whom survive. They are Lecel Leard of near Bowersville; Mrs. George Perkins of Norman, Oklahoma; C.J. Leard of Hartwell; Dr. P.A. Leard of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Myron R. Leard of Colbert, Georgia. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. The death of a daughter, Miss Lizzie Leard, which occurred at Canon last year, was the first death of this large family. Mr. Leard was the oldest of 8 children. All have passed away except the youngest, Mrs. Ollie Phillips, who lives in Atlanta. Mr. Leard was one of the old type citizens whom we regret to see depart. He lived at home, attended to his own affairs, looked after his business, reared an honorable family, and owed no man. He was regarded as one of our best citizens. His wife was confined to her bed when death came to Mr. Leard. She is also advanced in years. She stood the shock of her husband's death remarkably well and is in as good condition as could be expected.
