General Notes for Child James Franklin Tate

The State Tribune
Saturday March 25, 1882

Passed away at his residence in Kanawha County, Poca District, on Tuesday March 14th, 1882, James, son of Press Tate, aged thirty five years. About twelve years ago he married Emma Edens, daughter of J. A. Edens. While God, in his all wise Providence, has seen fit to remove him from this world, and transplant in His kingdom above, we are left to sympathize with his surviving friends. (edited)
