A large concourse of people assembled at the cemetery to deposit the remains
of Grandpa McADOO in its last resting place. We did not get a biography of
the deceased; therefore we cannot give a deserving eulogy at this writing.

We learn the infant of Mr. And Mrs. Sid DERRICK who has been sick some time,
was relieved of its pains and sufferings by death last Saturday morning. We
extend our sympathies to the bereaved relatives and friends

 

A son was born to Mr. And Mrs. Joe McADOO
