James Woods died at his home near Centerton last Monday morning, June 10th, 1907, aged about seventy-six years. He had been in failing health for some time past and his death was not unexpected. Mr. Woods was one of the oldest citizens of this county, was well known and highly esteemed by a multitude of people; in fact no man in the county was considered his superior in morality, uprightness and integrity, and his passing away has caused universal regret throughout this entire county. The funeral services were held at 10:00 o'clock Tuesday morning at the Presbyterian Church in this city, the deceased having been a zealous member of that church for many years. The remains were interred in the Woods burying ground, four miles east of here. The services at the church were attended by a large congregation and the procession to the burying ground was one of the longest ever seen in this city, which is evidence of the high esteem in which the deceased was held. We extend sympathy to the bereft family and relatives.
