The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the Oak Grove church conducted by the Rev. R. P. Keathley of Morrisville, a Cumberland Presbyterian minister. J. C.

Burial was in the Oak Grove cemetery and the following grandchildren were pallbearers: George and Herbert Warden, Russell and Alberta Marsh, Clarence, G. D. Mark and Calvin Matthews.

The tombstone seems to list the wrong death month. The tombstone lists the death date as June 15, 1954.

The tombstone lists the death date as June 15, 1954. This seems to be a mistake because the death certificate was filed July 18 and also lists the death date as July 15, 1954.
