After an illness extending over many months, Mr. J. A. Lamkin, prominent farmer of the Harmony section, died Friday of last week, and the remains were laid to rest in the Clear Creek Cemetery, Saturday afternoon at 4 o';clock, Rev. J. Herrick Hall, local Baptist pastor, officiating. A large crowd of sympathizing friends was present to witness the last sad rites.
Mr. Lamkin was about 74 years of age. Up to a few years ago he was an active, vigorous man, but fell aprey to illness some time ago, since which time the decline in his physical condition was very noticeable. He was a man highly regarded throughout this section, and popular with all who knew him. He raised a large and interesting family of children, nearly all of whom are now grown and settled in life. His widow also survives. Mr. Lamkin had lived in this section for many years. He ever proved himself a good friend and neighbor, a devoted husband and father, and no man in his community stood any higher in the estimation of his fellowman. His death is deeply and sincerely deplored.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his bereaved ones. [last one to be buried at Clear Creek]
