James Wright Funeral

A large number of the relatives, friends and neighbors of the late James Wright gathered at the family home on South Wayne Street this afternoon to attend his funeral, which was conducted there by Rev. Otto Stroup, paster of the Christian church at Frankton.

Mr. Wright, who was born and reared on a farm two miles south of Alexandria, a son of the late Joseph Wright, had spent all of his life in that community until he retired from active farm work and moved to Alexandria a few years ago.

Pallbearers at the service were old neighbors and friends, Logan Jones, Harry Morgan, George Hicks, H.G. Ferguson, Charles Black and Thomas Ellis. Internment was in the I.O.O.F. cemetery here.
