Funeral Rites Held For J. E. MontgomeryFuneral rites for the body of J. E. Montgomery were held ________________ (unreadable). J. E. Harrell, pastor of the First Methodist Church, was in charge of the service. A quartet was rendered by Mrs. J. W. Henry, Miss Helen Joyner, James B. Reed and Lela ____ Wilson. Interment followed in Spur cemetery with Spencer Campbell in charge of arrangements.
Mr. Montgomery had been in ill health for several months and the family realized the past several weeks that he could not recover. He bore his illness with patience, and every care was given that was within the bounds of human ability.
Mr. Montgomery was born in Alabama April 25, 1871. He came to Texas when a child four years of age and settled with his parents in Hopkins County where he grew to manhood. He was married to Miss Kate Lynn May 17, 1891, and to this union nine children were born. Seven still survive, but only three were able to attend the funeral services. They were Mrs. A. G. Oliver and Forrest Montgomery of Oklahoma City, and Mrs. Laine, with whom he was living. In addition to these he is survived by his widow, Mrs. Kate Lynn Montgomery, one granddaughter, Mrs. Horace Wood, two grandsons, Mott and Bill Laine, and two great granddaughters, Beverly and Margaret Laine Wood.
Mr. and Mrs. Montogomery were citizens of Spur during the early days of the town. They moved to Oklahoma where they lived until last June when they returned here hoping that Mr. Montgomery might regain his health. Mr.and Mrs. Laine did all they could for them, but it appears that Mr. Montogomery´s health was too far gone to be recovered.
