|Death: ||Sep. 9, 1947|
Rome Arthur Faires was a farmer and lived in the Corinth, Mississippi area.
He died Sept. 9, 1947. He had been admitted to the hospital in Corinth a few weeks earlier with a heart problem. After a few days he felt better, dressed, and asked to pay his bill. Told that the doctor had not dismissed him, he said that he was dismissing himself, and he did. He was sitting on the back porch peeling apples for Susie to make a pie when he died.
The funeral records reveal the body was delivered to the house, that the house had no electricity, and that the grave was opened by friends. The casket cost $350, and with the best of everything the total cost was $413.
The pallbearers were listed as L.E. Jernigan, R.E. Harkin, C.F. Rinehart, Edd Michaels, Clyde Davidson, and Raymond Biggers. There were 15 flower girls and the Corinth Quartet sang. He was buried at Holley Cemetery.
