Obituary of Mr. J. W. James
Crab Orchard, KY., Feb. 27.
On February 25th, near the somber hour of midnight, the noble and generous spirit of J.W. James, the noblest man that ever lived in all the tide of Time, took its 
flight from his elegant home to a far more splendid mansion in the skies. He was not yet 45, and no man, not even his lamented father, the late G. W. James, will 
be so sadly missed by the poor and humble. He has had many work hands in his service, and when any servant or ex-servant died, he always gave him appropriate 
burial at his own expense. When some poor black woman, sick and out of coal and provisions, would be sent at his own expense in his own wagon.
On one occasion, a poor destitute man, (William Kidd), with a withered arm, passing his place of business with an empty meal sack on hi shoulder, and a coffee-sack in 
which he had three hens, the only property he had in the world, stopped in to warm, Willie said, what have you there, Bill, a "possom? No. How are the "possums"? 
Mightly scarce. How are times with you? Mighty hard. I have in my coffee-sack my only three hens. The only things I have in the world. I am taking 
them to the store to buy me some meal and coffee. Look here at this paper and see what your hens are worth in the market - 68 cents a piece. Take them 
back home to lay you some eggs, and take this dollar to buy you some coffee and meat, and take your meal sack up to my miller and tell him to fill it as full of 
meal as he can tie it. He gave more to preachers, churches, Sunday schools, Christmas trees, and to feed and clothe the poor, than any other man in Lincoln county.
Alas! How sad that one who had so often fed the hungry, should die hungry himself
because he could not eat! His donations to churches, Sunday schools and to charity amounted annually to the hundreds.
Frank Brooks said on the train to-day, "The death of will James is the breaking up of the noblest family that ever lived in Lincoln county." His place 
here can never be supplied. His fortune was ample, his cash capital in the thousands, and his pockets always full to meet the demands of the borrower and the beggar. How 
much better this than millions to libraries for ostentatious only, which do not benefit the poor people.
I never saw such universal sorrow expressed in all ranks of life. At his burying were the proud aristocrats and the poor tenant, working men and their wives and their little 
children shivering in the snow. At Stanford, Monday morning, more grief was expressed by such men as Cicero Reynolds, County Clerk George R. Cooper and the 
editor of the Interior Journal, all of whom had had business relations with him.
He was for some time clerk in the J. B. Owsley bank at Stanford and was a devoted friend of this venerable financier, whose confidence he enjoyed. He was 
educated at Georgetown College, and tough not gifted with the divine inflators of hefty oratory, yet in debate in that college when no doubt, he was competing 
with the Georgetown or Lexington bar, he took the prize in discussing where or not circumstantial evidence should be admitted in the courts. His side of the debate 
was the affirmative. He was a fluent talker, an excellent penman and an accurate and rapid accountant. He was the fond idol of his mother and his relatives, male and female, 
loved him to idolatry. His aunt, Mrs. M. V. Siglar adored him as her own darling "Willie." Deceased was twice married. His first wife was Mattie Owsley Evans, 
daughter of the late George W. Evans, and his present wife was Margaret, daughter of the noble old Scotchman, the late John Buchanan. His wives were both 
most excellent women of the first families, and his last wife is noted for her domestic qualities. Like the great Washington, the deceased left no children, but all the poor 
of this community will ever regard him as a father, brother and friend. His grand old father, G. W. James, and devoted mother Lizzie P. James, preceded him to the tomb 
some years ago. He leaves a most devoted wife to mourn his untimely death. His sisters, Mrs. Louanna Holdam, of Stanford, Mrs. Scott, of Somerset, and Mrs. Berta 
Morris, of Crab Orchard, are broken hearted with grief, fresh wounds no time can heal and he left male and female relatives and friends who will never cease to mourn for him 
who never gave cause to mourn before. He was in many qualities the grandest man that ever moved in the track or time. Brave and noble, gallant and true! His poor little niece, 
Sue Beth James, and nephew, George Andrew James, dual orphans, whose father gave his life in service as a soldier in the far away Phillippines, came up from Stanford to 
mingle their tears over the grave of the dear departed. All relatives and friends who are good enough will meet him again. Oh, shall we not strive to do so?
Rev. O. M. Huey made most beautiful and appropriate remarks at the residence to the large crowd assembled there, which at first fanned the flames of grief in talking of the 
noble dead and cruel Death, till it was almost unbearable, but at the close, with his soft empressions and beautiful language, he managed our grief to soft, soothing, 
sacred billows of sorrow, which we hope will softly slumber there forever! 
One by one our friends depart,
Who has not lost a friend?
There is no union here of hearts,
But that union has an end.
Farewell, dear Willie, we leave thee
With the new fallen snow for a winding sheet,
And cold, bleak winter for a bier;
And every clod beneath the mourner's feet
Moistened with a tear.

FONTAINE F. BOBBITT
