James McAferty was born October 28, 1829, and died March 27, 1907 aged 77 years, 5 months. He was married August 21, 1851 to Miss Elma J. Wilcox, in Iowa. To this union were born seven children, four sons and three daughters. This union was severed by the death of the wife October 17, 1883, and the funeral was held in the M. E. church at Soldier conducted by Rev. A. B. Channel of America City. Mr. McAferty was married a second time about fourteen years ago to Mrs. Margaret Ryan [Rion] who also preceded him to the home beyond Jan. 22, 1899 ... united with the United Brethren in Christ church at Oak Grove thirteen years ago ... Since the death of his last companion Brother McAferty has made his home most of the time with his daughter Mrs. A. P. Biggart, but at the time of his death was with his son, Rev. E. McAftery, of McLouth, Kansas. James McAferty moved to Kansas in 1877 and settled on a farm about four miles west of Soldier, and he has resided in this vicinity practically all the time since that early date .... He leaves five children to mourn his departure, being Orrin McAferty and Mrs. A. P. Biggart, of Downs, Kansas, Rev. N. McAferty of Mayday, Kansas; Rev. E.E. MAferty of McLouth, Kansas, and Mrs. John Kinnick, of Montana ... remains were placed to rest by the side of the wife of his youth in the Soldier cemetery.
