Mr. J. A. Christy (sic) of Stonewall, and Miss Rachael Black of near Davis, drove to the Presbyterian manse Christmas morning where Rev. R. W. Oakes spoke the words that mad them husband and wife. They left immediately for their new home near Stonewall, where the young husband is a farmer. We wish them health and happiness.
(The news article was mistaken about Mr. Christy's name; his name was Burrel Homer Christy.)

B. H. Christy
The body of B. H. Christy was shipped to Davis from Henryetta Okla., and interred in the cemetery at Oak Ridge Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, fraternal services being held by the Woodmen of the World. One of the largest crowds ever seen at a funeral in this vicinity was in attendance.
Burl Horner Christy (sic) was 30 years of age and leaves a wife and four small children. He was a son-in-law of W. T. Black, who lives on the Chas. Stewart place near Davis, form which place the funeral cortege started.
For some time Mr. Christy has been living at Henryetta, Okla. Last Thursday he came in contact with a live wire in a mine, which caused his death. At the same time his brother received a shock from the same wire but succeeded in saving himself. The Christy family has experienced a number of sad accidents. In 1911 Mr. Christy had a brother killed in the mines west of Davis. Later his sister and grandmother were struck by a train, the sister being killed.
Mr. Christy formerly lived in this vicinity and was looked upon as a good man and had lots of friends. His tragic death is deeply deplored. He was a member of the Woodmen lodge at Henryetta and fraternal services were held by the Woodmen of Davis at the request of his home Camp.
