OBITUARIES
  



James Thomas Owens

James Thomas Owens, aged 64 years, passed away Sunday morning at 5:30 o’clock.  
He had been in poor health for some time and it is thought his death was due to 
heart trouble combined with a slight stroke of paralysis.
            
He was born in this county and was an old soldier.  For many years he was in the 
employ of J. L. Hutchinson, a man who cared for him as he would a brother.
            
Mr. Owen was found unconscious in his bed room Sunday morning and death relieved 
him before consciousness returned.
            
He leaves a wife and several children.
            
The funeral was preached by Rev. W. A. Browder, Monday morning, and the body was laid away  
at Hopewell Cemetery.
