J.M. Leonard Rites Are Set

Funeral Services Will Be Held Saturday.

Funeral services for James Marion Leonard, 85, who died at a Spartanburg hospital early Thursday morning after a short illness, will be held Saturday morning at 11 o'clock at the Abner Creek Baptist Church south of Greer, conducted by his pastor, the Rev. D.R. Hill, assisted by the Rev. J. W. Shell. Interment will follow in the family plot beside his wife who preceded him to the grave.
Serving as pallbearers will be Vernon Leonard, Acy Leonard, Grady Thackston, Luther Taylor, Andrew Edge and John Conner.
Mr. Leonard was for the greater part of his life a resident of Reidville township in Spartanburg County and was a well known farmer. He has many friends that will learn with regret of his death.
He is survived by one grandson, Oliver Leonard of Spartanburg, a daughter-in-law, Mrs. James Leonard of Spartanburg, and one sister, Mrs. Louise Staggs of Holly Springs.
Until Saturday morning at 10:30 the body will be at the Wood Mortuary in Greer at which time the funeral party will leave for the place of funeral.
