Aged Man
(Transcribed from Chickasha Daily Star,
August 20, 1909)


The death of Dr. J. Kendall occurred last night at 12:15 at his home on South Eighth Street.

Funeral services were conducted at the family residence by Rev. M. L. Butler this afternoon at 4:00 o'clock and internment occurred at the Odd Fellow's cemetery.

The deceased was born in Bowling Green, Ky., on May 27, 1825. He is survived by a wife [Alzina Wood Kendall] and six children: Mrs. J. G. Mayes [Josephine or Josie], and Mrs. Lee Reynolds [Nellie] of this city, Mrs. J. W. Perkins [Mable] of Oklahoma City, Misses Rita [Margaret] and Ethel Kendall, and Luther Kendall.

Dr. Kendall was a consistent member of the Methodist Church and was also a Mason. For a number of years he had been retired from the practice of his profession. He was a devoted husband and father and among all who knew him he bore the reputation of being an exemplary citizen and a man of unimpeachable character.
