Eight years ago on New Year's Day at 3 o'clock his wife, Minerva, preceded him on that journey from which no traveler returns. His eldest daughter, Mrs. Jack Allin, died last May. He would have been 80 years old had he lived until next March, having been born March 28, 1856. He was one of a family of two boys and six girls only one of whom remains, Mrs. Annie G. Dorna, now living in Toronto, Canada. Among others to mourn his death are four daughters, Mrs. Holman Hogue, Mrs. F. D. Royce, Mrs. H. D. Ransdell, and Mrs. Hugh Ison; 21 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. His name is associated with the roll of the Christian Church of Harrodsburg, in which city and surrounding territory he leaves a host of acquaintances and friends. He was ever a friend to one in need and a good neighbor. Funeral services were held at the Harrodsburg Christian Church Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock, the Rev. T. Hassell Bowen, pastor, and Rev. M. T. Hart, pastor of the Danville Christian Church, officiating. Burial followed in Spring Hill cemetery. Pal bearers were Curtis and Allen Ransdell, English Bell, Forrest Hogue, Eddie Wright, and Tom Allin.
