A. J. Chapman Died Tuesday Morning
A. J. Chapman, aged 68 years, died Tuesday morning at 7 o'clock at his home in this city after an extended illness. Cirrhosis of the liver is given as the cause of his death. He had been in failing health for several years and visited some of the most noted hospitals in the United States in search of health.
The funeral was held at the family home in this city this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Services were conducted by Rev. F. A. Tucker, pastor of the Methodist church. Judge E. W. Fagan of Sulphur also made a brief talk. The pall bearers were U. S. Marshals and other officials from Ardmore.
Mr. Chapman was a native of Louisiana and was raised in West Texas. When 11 years of age he left home, and from his best information his parents died 50 years ago. He took to ranch life in his young days, and spent the major part of his life on ranches in West Texas and Oklahoma. At various time he was the owner of several large ranches.
He served as U. S. Marshal for many years. He lived in the Cherokee Strip for many years and was a citizen of Ardmore for probably 25 years. He also lived at Gainesville and Oklahoma City. At Alva, Okla., he joined the Masonic lodge and continued to hold his membership there. Last February he and Mrs. Chapman established their home in Davis where he spent his remaining days, in bed most of the time. Prominent in business affairs, he had a wide acquaintance throughout the State.
The funeral was delayed until today, awaiting the arrival of his only daughter, Mrs. Roland Jarrett and her son Jerry of San Antonio, Texas. She was a daughter by his first wife, who was a sister of Sherman Joines. His second wife formerly was Mrs. Ada Rogers, who survives. She was his constant companion and gave him devoted attention during his several years' illness.
