ALLRED, J.B. - {from Prairie Creek} The relatives and friends were shocked when they heard of the sudden death of J.B. Allred about 8 o'clock in the evening. While his daughter, Orpha, was reading to him he quietly passed away while sitting in his chair, almost without a struggle. He had been to Rogers that day and seemed to be feeling unusually well and talkative. J.B. Allred was born in Randolph county, North Carolina in 1843 and died May 13, 1924, having lived to the ripe old age of 81 years, 1 month and 23 days. He was married to Miss Sarah A. Griffith October 21, 1873 and to this union four children were born, three dying in infancy. One boy is living in Checota, Okla. The wife and mother also died. He was again married in 1883 to Miss Anna Gibson and eight children were born to this union and two died in babyhood. This wife preceded him to the great Beyond a number of years. The children were all present at his funeral but Frank, whose address is unknown. Miss Orpha Allred lived with him. Allison Allred of San Antonio, Texas, Oscar Allred of Wichita, Kansas, Clebourne Allred of Coffeyville, Okla.{?} and Mrs. Lillian Allred of Rogers, Ark. He also leaves 16 grandchildren, two brothers and two sisters, His early life after leaving North Carolina was spent in Indiana and Kansas. He moved to Arkansas in 1887 to the farm where he died, having lived there 37 years. He united with the M.E. church at an early age in North Carolina. After moving to Arkansas he united with the M.E. church at Pace's Chapel where his membership remained till death. He lived a consistent Christian life. The funeral services were conducted by Bro. Chas. Edwards at Pace's Chapel at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon. The remains were laid to rest by the side of his wife in the little cemetery near Pace's Chapel to await the resurrection. We wish to extend our heart-felt sympathy to the bereaved children and grandchildren and other relatives. Our whole community will miss him.

ALLRED, Ann - Mrs. Ann Allred, wife of J.B. Allred, died at their home near Pace's Chapel on Prairie Creek on the 2nd day of November after a lingering illness of several months. Mrs. Allred has been known to the writer for eighteen or nineteen years, he being one of their near neighbors during that length of time, and I consider her one of the very best women I have ever known. She was a woman of the highest type, a Christian, a devoted mother, a true wife and an obliging neighbor. Mrs. Allred was a native of North Carolina but she with her husband came west twenty years ago and finally settled in this county. She leaves a husband and six children to mourn her loss. Rest in peace, Sister Allred, we hope to meet you again. A Friend and Neighbor.
