S. J. Pike (Shadrach Jasper Pike)

After having lived in Grayson county for twenty-one years and wrought faithfully as preacher and teacher, S. J. Pike of Pottsboro heard the summons that all must answer and at 12:05 Tuesday passed peacefully away at the age of 64 years. He was minister in the Baptist church and at intervals taught school in the county. Many of his old pupils and those whom he led to the Savior have called at the home and will follow his remains to their last resting place. Death came as a result of dropsy of the heart.

Deceased came to Grayson county from Tennessee and his life has largely been spent in service in the rural communities and small towns. He had just closed a school at Mt. Zion. He is survived by his widow and three sons, W. J. Pike, Denison; Davit T. Pike, Holdenville, Okla; Albert (sic Elbert), Tulsa, Okla; and one daughter, Mrs. John L. Hodges, Benjamin, Okla. all are present to attend the funeral with the exception of John L., who has not been located as yet.

Deceased was a member of the Woodmen of the World lodge at Dripping Springs. Funeral services will be conducted from the family home Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. Joe Thedford in charge, with Rev. Jas. E. Morris assisting. Burial will follow at Oakwood cemetery at 11 o'clock, a short service being held at the grave. Funeral will be directed by George Shields.
