J.L.C. Thomasson, aged 75, died at his home at Warren Saturday morning after an illness of a week. Mr. Thomasson was a citizen of this county for nearly 60 years,having resided near Pansy, Harper township, since shortly after the close of the Civil War. He moved to Warren two years ago. He is survived by his widow, six sons, D.H., Robert Lee, J.H., and V.O. of Rison, W.J. and Edgar Thomasson of Herbine; and one sister, Mrs. Jim Cooper of England.

Funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon at Prosperity Methodist church of which he was a member, by the Rev. Harold D. Sadler, pastor of the Rison Methodist church. Burial was at the Cooper cemetery in charge of Mill Creek Lodge F.& A. M.

Mr. Thomasson was born at Rock Hill, S.C., July 8, 1853, and moved to Arkansas when a lad of 14. One year of his residence in this state was spent in Drew county, after which he came to this county, making his home in Harper township until 1925. He was a member of the Methodist Church and was for more than 25 years a steward at Prosperity Church, near his home. He was one of the most beloved and useful citizens of the county. His popularity and the love in which he was held by those who knew him was indicated by the great crowd of people from many sections that attended the funeral and burial services Sunday. It was said to be the largest crowd of people ever to attend a funeral in that community.
