Arkansas, USA
Death: May 3, 1908
Benton County
Arkansas, USA

James F. Nail died last Thursday, May 3rd at his home 1/2 mile wast of Lowell. Death was the resuslt of pneumonia and other complications, as he had been sick just 33 days. Funeral services were held Thursday at Ben Phillips Cemetery and were conducted by Rev. Green of Lowell. Mr. Nail would have been 43 years old on the 20th of this month and leaves a wife and six children (5 boys & 1 girl). He had lived in Benton Co., all his life and was born within 1/2 mile of where he died. Two years ago he was elected road overseer of Washington Township and was re-nominated this spring at the primary. Virgil Nail, his oldest son, has been appointed overseer for the remiander of his fathers term. Mr. Nail was one of the most popular men in the township and had the respect and confidence of the entire community and his untimely death is greeatly deplored by all. The Democrat joins with the many friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved family. The deceased was the oldest of the family of eight sons, all of whom lived within a radius of a mile of their mother, Mrs. Henrietta Nail. The father died some 13 years ago but the death last week was the first break in the ranks of the eight boys, all of whom are married and have families of their own save one who is home with his mother. It is very unusual to find so large a family holding so closely together. (Rogers Democrat May 13, 1908)
