years ago from Tennessee and located on a farm near Creswell, where he has
since resided. He was a valuable citizen and did much to forward the morals
of his community. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. He is survived

W. J. Seay of Calico Rock. Burial took place at Palestine cemetery Sunday,
