LAKIN, John R. - Grandpa Lakin, our oldest inhabitant, died at 2 a.m. Monday, Jan. 1, 1912, after having been bedfast for many weeks; the result of naught but old age and having reached his allotted time, passed peacefully away. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Kelley and interment took place at the I.O.O.F. cemetery. John R. Lakin was born in Lawrence Co., Ky. Nov. 23, 1822. He married Evalin Dean, to this union four children were born, two of whom survive, George Lakin and Mrs. J.W. McAllister; the first wife died in 1854 and in 1858 Mr. Lakin and Miss Elizabeth Bocook were married. Of four children born to this union, J.D. and William survive. All the children reside in Gravette. Mr. Lakin moved from Kentucky to Missouri and had lived at Gravette about ten years and at the time of death was in his 90th year. He had been a church member for many years. The News Herald joins with the friends of the family in extending them sympathy in the hour of trial.
