Last Sunday morning, at eight o'clock, this community was shocked by the announcement of the death of Mr. J. W. Page,
living about one mile southeast of Briggs. Mr. Page was taken
suddenly ill on Friday night and was never again conscious. They
had four doctors with him during his illness; Drs. Taylor and McCarty of this county and Drs. Bennett and Atkinson from Williamson county, but their efforts were all in vain.
The burial services took place on Monday morning at ten o'clock, under
the auspices of the W. O. W., of which order he was a member.
Quite a number of the Florence Camp were present to participate in the
ceremonies: Sovereign J. C. Withers of the Florence Camp, acting as Master of Ceremonies, Sovereigns and J. M. West, W. C. Dillingham, A. T. Deer, J. A. King, E. L. CaskeyGeo. Baker acting as pallbearers.
Mr. Page was a member of
the Briggs Camp No. 1205, and of this Camp. He was the Camps
first loss. He was also a member of the Home Circle Society.
Mr. Page was a consistent Christian, a good moral citizen and well
liked by all who knew him. He leaves a wife and two small girls,
besides a host of friends to mourn his loss.
