Leroy Blackburn, Dead!

Leroy Blackburn, aged about 65, died Monday at 7:30 a.m. at his home on English Creek 6 miles south west of Mammoth Spring below the ford on the Oxford road of dropsy after an illness of several months and was buried Tuesday afternoon at the Bethel graveyard, Eld. B. McLemmons conducting the funeral service. There was a great crowd at the cemetery to witness the final ceremonies. He was the father of 5 children, all of whom were present at the graveside except one. Leroy Blackburn was one of the really good citizens, always right on public questions, a member of the Christian church. If he had an enemy, we never heard of it, and we have known him more than 30 years.
