James Smith, Little Moyle, Carlow. 1892.

The Carlow Sentinel, October 8th 1892.

Death of Mr. James Smith.

We regret to announce the death of Mr. James Smith, which occurred at his residence, Little Moyle, in this county, after an illness of some month's duration, at the ripe old age of 84.

The deceased gentleman was closely identified with the agricultural interests of the county.

During the existence of the Carlow Agricultural Society he was one of the most successful exhibitors at its annual shows, and rendered good service by introducing the best breeds of stock into the district.

His remains were interred in Kellistown churchyard on Monday, the funeral being attended by a very large number of friends.

The coffin was borne from the house to the hearse by employees at Little Moyle, and into and from the Church by Freemasons, deceased being an old and respected member of the order.

His son, Mr Kane Smith, and his son-in-law, Mr Kennedy, were chief mourners.

The Rev. T.H.Hatchell, rector of the parish, officiated at the Burial Service.


Funeral of the Late Mr. James Smith ----

We have been requested to state that Mr. Breslin, son-in-law of the late Mr. Smith, who was to have been one of the chief mourners, was unable to reach Carlow in time for the funeral, having been on the Continent when he received intelligence of the death.

The above is a true and accurate transcript of the original document.
