JAMES DICKEY ANTHONY, 16 Jun 1897
Death of Jas. D. Anthony. On Wednesday morning at 8:50 o’clock a. m., the soul of Mr. Jas. D. Anthony passed into the Unknown Beyond. In this taking off, Giles County loses one of her most influential and highly respected citizens. He possessed many noble traits of character, and his life was such that anyone might wish their’s(sic) like it. A devoted husband, a loving father and a true friend. Up to a few years ago his health was almost perfect, but cancerous affliction laid its hand upon this physically perfect man and brought to him weakness and death, and but for it effects he doubtless would have lived many years yet. He was in his 83rd year. A few minutes before his death he went out into his yard, to walk around, while there he was taken worse and lived only a few seconds after being carried in the house. Funeral services were said over his remains at the Episcopal Church, yesterday at 2:30 o’clock p. m. by the Rev. Kilheffer, of Columbia, after which the remains were carried to Maplewood and there laid to rest. To the grief stricken wife, who so patiently and devoted attended his every want, and other members of the family THE RECORD joins with a host of friends in deepest sympathy.
