"Death of James C. Peed.
James C. Peed died Monday morning at his home on East Broad street. He had been very sick since last fall, but a few weeks ago was better and able to walk over to town. He took down again and grew worse each day, his last ailment being of a dropsical nature.
The deceased was born in 1825 near Maysville, Ky., the place from whence came the several families by that name. His folks came to Henry county about 1840 and settled along Flat Rock where the subject of this sketch lived until 1889. As a young man he taught school and later engaged in farming and stock raising, at which he was very successful.
Mr. Peed was married in 1852 to Martha Jane Boyd. To this marriage were born three children, Mrs. Nathan May, Mrs. Thomas B. Millikan and Mrs. W. S. Kaufman of Richmond. Mrs. Peed died in 1861. A few years later Mr. Peed married Louisa Boyd and the children of this union were Mrs. Jennie Peed and Mrs. Kittie Heller, deceased. His second wife died in 18[?]3, since which time Mr. Peed has lived with his daughter, Jennie.
The deceased was one of the oldest members of the Masonic Lodge, having joined nearly a half century ago. He was a member of the Christian church for about the same period and took an active part in its affairs.
The funeral services which were conducted by Rev. J. P. Ewing at the Christian church Wednesday afternoon, were attended by a large concourse. The remains were taken to Batson cemetery for interment."
