Sebring, Fla. Nov., 14, 1923

Dr. J. H. Bogle, 55, the second of Sebring's older physicians to answer his last "call" within a month, died Saturday November 10, at 10:21 in the morning after a brief illness. He was stricken with colitis while in attendance of a patient last week and grew rapidly worse. All that was known to medical science was done in a vain attempt to save his life. Drs. Weem and Cook of this city, with Dr. Koker of Arcadia and Dr. Wallace of Tampa, assisted by Mrs. Long of this city and Miss Bush Of Tampa, both graduate nurses, were with him until the end. James Harvey Bogle was born in Bland County, Virginia, April 6, 1868. He graduated from The School of Physicians and Surgeons of Baltimore, John Hopkins, and practiced medicine for several years in the vicinity of his birthplace. Here he was married on October 7, 1896 to Miss Della Claire Bailey, who survives him. To this union, eight children were born, Kathleen who is studying medicine at Richmond, Va.; Mary; Anna; Edna; James; John; Lake and Madelyn, all of this city. One daughter, Verena, died in Roanoke at age nine. Before coming to Sebring four years ago, Dr. Bogle practiced in Roanoke, Va. for thirteen years. He was prominent in medical circles in that community, having been president of the Shenandoah Hospital of Roanoke for many years. Ill health forced his removal to Sebring where he has been in active practice. Besides his immediate family, he leaves to mourn his loss, a sister, Mrs. Paris Saunders of White Gate, Va., and two brothers, George Bogle of Winchester, Ohio and John Bogle of Dublin, Va., all of whom were prevented from attending the funeral by illness in the family. L. P. Bailey, a brother of Mrs. Bogle, came Monday evening and will stay for a week. Wednesday all of Sebring paused from ten o'clock until twelve to pay its last honor to all that was mortal of Dr. Bogle and to show its sympathy to the bereaved family. Every store, office, and factory closed its doors and the entire city bowed its head with grief at the passing of a good physician, loving friend, and faithful counselor. The funeral services which were held in the M. E. Church, were in the charge of the Masonic Lodge. At nine thirty, the intimate friends of the family gathered at the home and at ten, the funeral cortege started for the church led by the Sebring band who played the solemn funeral music. The hearse was followed by an escort of Masons in full regalia, and the flower bearers with the beautiful floral tributes, which were sent from every civic, social and church organization in the city, from the staff of the Shenandoah Hospital and from sorrowing friends and relatives in Virginia, and in this vicinity. The church services were beautiful and impressive . Rev. L. A. Griggs officiated. He was assisted by Dr. John A. Taylor, Dr. H. A. Brown & Dr. J. R. Andrew, all friends of the family in Virginia. Many tributes were paid to the high sacrificing, unselfishness, and staunch loyalty of the deceased physician. The Methodist choir rendered most beautiful music. Interment was made in the Pine Crest Cemetery in this city and the largest funeral procession ever seen in Sebring, accompanied the body to its last resting place. The Masons took charge of the service at the grave and the impressive Masonic burial service was read by the Worshipful Master Walter Zachary, assisted by the Chaplain, J. W. Gerry. After the grave had been closed with Masonic Rites, four mounted Klansmen rode silently up and planted on the grave of their loyal brother, the red and white cross and the American flag.
