GENTRY
After an illnes of nearly four months, Mr. Richard Gentry died at the Good Samaritan Hospital, Lexington, at 3:30 Friday morning. Deceased was born in this county in September, 1865, and the greater portion of his life had been spent in this community. About 15 years ago Mr. Gentry removed to Lexington, where his genial, open-hearted disposition gathered to him a legion of steadfast friends who sincerely sorrow his untimely end.
He is survived by two brothers, Capt. Robert R. Gentry, of this place, and C.E. Gentry, of Oxford, O., and one sister, Mrs. Eliza Blain, of this place.
The remains were brought to the home of Capt. Gentry Friday night and on Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock all that was mortal of this generous, honest man was lowered to its resting place in Buffalo cemetery after a short service by Rev. D.M. Walker. A large number of acquaintances, including many Lexington Eagles, of which order Mr. Gentry was a member, assembled at his bier to pay the last tribute of respect to their departed friend
