"The Roanoke Leader" - May 14, 1924:

MANY FRIENDS MOURN DEATH OF MR. J.W. BELCHER

About four o'clock yesterday as the afternoon came to a peaceful close, the long life of Mr. John W. Belcher ended at his home in this city, following an extended period of declining health. He lacked only a month of being 77 years
of age. The remains of this beloved citizen will be interred at Mount Pisgah near Stroud, at three o'clock this afternoon. The services will be conducted by Elder Satterwhite and Dr. Turner.
As a boy soldier, Mr. Belcher served in the Confederate Army the latter part of the Civil War. Like many others of his day his early opportunities were greatly interfered with, yet he undertook the battle bravely, despite the
prevailing handicap of the surroundings of those dark
days, and he met with a commendable measure of success. The greater part of his life was spent in the northern part of Chambers county. He moved to Roanoke in 1901.
Mr. Belcher was a man of big, tender heart and he was actuated by the virtues of honesty and charity. Many are those whom he has helped and cheered and blessed along the way. He will be greatly missed and sincerely mourned by
this wide circle. Mr. Belcher is survived by his brothers T.L. and J.M. Belcher; his sisters, Mrs. W.H. Howell, Mrs. Anna Bachus and Mrs. J.W. Danielly; his children, Mrs. C.F. Higgins, J.B. Belcher and Mrs. Sallie Mae Jones and many other relatives.
