J. W. BIDDIX PASSES; FUNERAL TUESDAY

Mr. J. W. Biddix, aged eighty-seven years, died at the home of his son, J. B. Biddix, near Greenlee, Sunday morning at seven a. m. Mr. Biddix had been in very feeble health for a number of years. Last year he suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered.

The deceased was a highly respected citizen of McDowell county. He represented this county in the Legislature something over twenty years ago, and served on the home guard during the war between the States. He always took an active interest in anything that meant for the upbuilding and improvement of his home section or county.

The funeral was conducted at two o'clock Tuesday by Rev. J. P. Hipps, assisted by Dr. J. T. Bowden. The final rites were held by the Masonic fraternity; of which Mr. Biddix had been a member for a long number of years, he being the oldest living member of the local lodge.

Mr. Biddix was born in McDowell County. He was twice married, first to Miss Esther Elizabeth Finley. To this union were born seven children, six sons and one daughter. The following sons survive:
F. W. of Canon City, Colorado
J. B. of Greenlee
Miles of Madison, Fla
J. L. of Marion
Ed of Badin
and J. C. of Baltimore

He was married the second time to Mrs. Mary Grant of this county, who proceeded her husband to the grave about twenty years ago.
