James Y Ledford Obituary May 1911 - It is with a sad heart we chronicle the death...
It is with a sad heart we chronicle the death of Mr. J. Y. Ledford on May oth at his home on Dig Creek. Ho was sick for only a few minutes before death claimed him. Uncle Jimmy, as he was familiarly called by all who knew him, was .born iu .Tennessee Xov. 1N30, making him over Sli years old at his death. His aged companion hail preceded him to the great beyond several years ngo and he aud his youngest sou had lived alone for quite awhile. He was a man well known aud liked by nil that knew him. He leaves two daugh ters, Mrs. Xettie Wood aud Mrs. Annie Dodsou; two sons, Seatou and William Ledford, all of Eunice, several grandchildreu, besides a host of friends to mourn for him. His face is gone from among us, his voice forever stilled, a place made vacant iu the home, which nevermore can be tilled. We are left to watch aud wait, until we meet him on yonder shore, and there we will meet to part no more. The body was laid to rest in the Bethel cemetery by the side of his companion, after a short service by Rev. Clark. The family have our sympathy in their sad hour of trial but we must not grieve for him as he left a bright testimony behind him to assure us that all is well with him. j
