Was sick For Several
Weeks; Gradually Grew Worse

Captain J. T. Buckley died at the family residence Wednesday morning after an illness of several weeks. For the past week, his family and friends knew that his condition was critical and recovery was impossible.

Captain Buckley was in his seventy-fourth year and was a member of the Methodist Church. He was a typical Southern gentleman, courteous, positive, and loyal to his friends. His removal from the walks of life is keenly regretted in the city, county, and state. He always took an active interest in public affairs and stood for the high ideals of life.

Captain Buckley was born at Embry in Holmes County and in 1874 he and Miss Emma King were married, and to this union there were born two daughters and three sons, three of whom are living; Miss Beulah and her mother reside here, L. E. Buckley of Columbia, and Clifford Buckley of Dallas, Texas.

Before moving to Winona in 1901, he lived at Vaiden where he conducted his business and was mayor of the city for several terms. He has served as United States Commissioner Deputy United States Marshal and Justice of Peace of this district. He has held many positions of honor and trust and always rendered distinctive service.

The funeral services were held at the residence, Thursday afternoon, at two o'clock, by Presiding Elder, J. T. Lewis and Rev. Carroll Varner, Pastor of the Methodist Church. His remains were carried to Vaiden and interred in the city cemetery there.

The Times joins many friends of the family in extending sympathy.
