Word comes to relatives in this county, of the death of James H. Edmondson, at his home in Stillwater, Okla., Feb 12, 1925, caused by a stroke of apoplexy, sustained three days before, this being the third stroke in the last few months.
Uncle Jim, as he was familiarly called, was a native of Harrison county, where he was born and reared, continuing to reside here, until about thirty five years ago, when he with his family, removed to Oklahoma where he engaged in farming, until the past two and one half years, since which time he has lived in Stillwater. He was a son of the late William M. Edmondson and wife, was born June 27, 1842, and was at the time of his death, aged eighty two years, seven months and fifteen days.
He was a soldier in the Union army, and after his return home, was married to Mary A. Davis. She died August 7, 1921, and on August 3, 1923, he was married to Mrs. Nancy E. Field, of Stillwater, who survives him. He is also survived by one son, C. M. Edmondson, of Orlando, Okla., one daughter, Mrs. Wood Peters, of Crab Orchard, Ky., thirteen grandchidlren, two sisters, Mrs. H. C. Davis and Mrs. J. H. Dellinger, both of Bucklin, Kan., and numerous other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held in Stillwater, February 13.
In the fall of 1922, uncle Jim returned to his old home, for a few days' visit, and enjoyed meeting old friends and acquaintances very much, and was enjoying splendid health at that time for one of his age. He was a good citizen and highly respected by all who knew him. --The Corydon Democrat (Corydon, Indiana); 04 Mar 1925; pg. 1
