At 11 o'clock Wednesday night Asa Peyton, aged 76, breathed his last at his home at Moreland. He had been a sufferer from heart disease and other troubles for a number of years, but for the past few months had been seriously ill.
He is survived by his aged wife and four children. They are D. H. C. Peyton, the well-known Moreland merchant, Mrs. Will Langford, of Ludlow, Mrs. W. H. Coleman and Mrs. Nettie Kauffman, of Casey.
The burial occurred in Hustonville cemetery this Friday afternoon, after funeral services at the home at 2 o'clock, by Rev. Enos Waggoner.
Mr. Peyton had for many years been a consistent member of the Methodist church and was a splendid old gentleman in every way. He will be missed in the community he had lived in so long.
