Funeral services for Dr. Nathan L. Waters, aged 36, widely known and esteemed physician of Centerton, this county, who died at a hospital at Prairie Grove, Ark., Thursday, Jan. 9th, 1936, from complications following an emergency appendicitis operation, were held at 10:30 o’clock, Saturday morning at the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, at Centerton, conducted by the Rev. F.A, Bradshaw, pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Vaughn, near Centerton, assisted by the Rev. A.L. Bridenthal, pastor of the Centerton church.

Burial was in the Centerton cemetery with funeral arrangements in charge of the Callison-McKinney Funeral Service of Bentonville.

Dr. Waters was a son of Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Waters of Benton, Miss., and was born at that place Jan. 16th, 1899. His death occurred just a week before his 36th birthday anniversary.

Following his graduation in 1920 from Mississippi College at Clinton, Miss., he attended a college of medicine at Dallas, Texas, and later continued his medical studies in Kansas City. Dr. Waters came to Arkansas and located at Centerton, five miles west of Bentonville, in 1930 and has since practiced his profession at that place, making a large number of friends throughout that community and section of Benton County, and building up a large practice in the six years that have elapsed since he adopted Arkansas as his home.

On Dec. 24th, 1934, Dr. Waters married Miss Arta Gamble, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John R. Gamble, well known residents of near Centerton for a great many years.

Beside his wife, Dr. Waters is survived by his mother, Mrs. W.W. Waters, who was seriously ill at her home at Benton, Miss., at the time of his death, and by two brothers and seven sisters. They are William and George Waters of Benton, Miss., Mrs. Clyde Smith of Thornton, Miss., Mrs. W.J. McDaniel of West, Miss., Mrs. W. T. Zeigler of Zeiglerville, Miss., Mrs. R.J. Keel of Gulfport, Miss., Mrs. R.D. Herrin of Yazoo City, Miss., and the Misses Thelma and Florence Waters of Benton, Miss.

Relatives and friends coming to Centerton on account of Dr. Waters death and funeral included two of his sisters, Mrs. Herrin and Miss Florence Waters and his brothers-in-law, R.J. Keel and Clyde Smith, all of Mississippi and his sister-in-.law, Mrs. James T. Carter of Conway, Ark., who is the former, Miss Alta Gamble of Centerton and Miss Ethel Gamble no of Eldorado, Kansas. The group of Mississippi relatives returned home immediately following the funeral on account of the critical illness of their mother. Others of Dr. Water’s relatives in that state did not come to Centerton due to the illness of Mrs. Waters, senior.
