Charles Bright Dies In Eminence

Charles Bright, Sr., a brother of James C. Bright, Sr., of this county, died suddenly at his home in Eminence last Saturday morning following an attack of apoplexy. He was well known over this county.

Mr. Bright was head of the Eminence Distillery Company for a number of years, operating the Eminence plant for the Benz Brothers, of Minneapolis, during their period of ownership. In recent years he had been engaged in the pure bred Jersey cattle business and was widely known as a breeder of some of the best Jersey Stock in the State. He was a member of a pioneer Shelby County family, his father, the late Newton Bright, Sr., being a large land owner in the northern part of the county and a member of the Legislature from Shelby. He was an officer of the Eminence Methodist Church and for a long period served as superintendent of the Sunday School.

Surviving Mr. Bright are his widow, Mrs. Capitola Barnett Bright, of Eminence; a son, Charles Bright, Jr., president of the Audubon Country Club of Louisville; three brothers, J. C. Bright, of this city, Coleman Bright and Newton Bright, and a sister, Mrs. A. D. Hudson, all of Eminence.

Funeral services were conducted at the family residence Monday with interment in the Eminence Cemetery.
