Uncle Joe Currie.
Uncle Joe Currie, ex-County Treasurer of Concho county, who was visiting his daughter, Mrs. Joe Hardin, in our city, died suddenly last Friday night at the home of his Daughter. He had a stroke of paralysis a short while ago but had apparently recovered from same, but for the past few days was not feeling so well though nothing of a serious nature. While sitting in his chair talking all at once he died and when the family took hold of (him) found he was dead.
Uncle Joe was one of the prominent and pioneer citizens of this Western country honorable upright and just in all his dealings with is fellowman and died as he had lived in the triumphs of a living faith. He was 70 years of age at the time of his death and had been a consistent member of the Baptist church many years. He leaves three daughters, Mrs. Joe Hardin of our city, and Mrs. George Garland of San Angelo, and Miss Ina Currie also four sons and a host of relatives and friends to morn his sudden demise. His remains were prepared for burial here by Undertaker, C. R. Crews of this city and taken to Paint Rock for interment the Baptist Pastor of Millersview officiating.
There was perhaps not a more wider and favorably known man in this country than was Uncle Joe Currie enjoying a wide friendship, who join relatives in mourning his passing into that country which no one has every (sic) yet returned.
