BAYES, Mrs. J.B. (Rice) [Amanda (Rice) Bayes]
WELL KNOWN BARNETTS CREEK WOMAN SUCCUMBS, AGE 74 Mrs. J. B. (Pete) Bayes, age 74 years of Barnetts Creek, passed away at her home on February 25. Mrs. Bayes had been in ill health for several years, but seven weeks before her death was confined to her bed. The family was called together when her illness became serious and remained with her until the end. Mrs. Bayes was a member of the Rice family and was one of the best women of the county, loved and respected by all who knew her. She was a member of the United Baptist church and will be remembered for the many kind things she did for friends and strangers alike when they came to her home. Her hospitality is almost a legend with the good people of Johnson and surrounding counties who have visited at the Bayes home. Mrs. Bayes was a devoted wife and mother. The heartfelt sympathy of their many friends go out to the family and especially go to the aged husband. Besides her husband she is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Willie Powers of Rush Fork and Mrs. Harry Tackett of Barnetts Creek., two sons, J. M. Bayes of Van Lear, Ky., and Dr. Lee Bayes of West Liberty, Ky. Three members of the family have passed away in recent years. Mrs. Addie Rice, Paintsville, Frank Bayes of Barnetts Creek, and Captain Sherman Bayes, of Massachusetts. Besides the immediate family Mrs. Bayes leaves a sister, Mrs. Clark Dixon, Buchanan, Ky., and six brothers, Martin Rice, Manford Rice, Alec Rice, all of Barnetts Creek; Wilse Rice of Manila, Ky., Dr. Grant Rice, Salyersville, and George Rice of Oil Springs.
