James H. WILLIAMS, age 28, who resided 15 miles north of Canadian, in Lipscomb county, died at a local hospital on April 7, 1930, following an operation for a ruptured appendix.

Funeral services were conducted from the First Baptist Church with Rev. W. C. Harrison, pastor, officiating.

James Henry WILLIAMS was born at Shattuck, Oklahoma on June 21, 1901. He lived there until his family moved to Rankin, Oklahoma twelve years later. They remained there about two years, then came to Canadian in 1915. Since that time, “Jim” as he was commonly known, has lived in Canadian and in adjoining communities.

He married Miss Ruth DOWNING April 29, 1922. They have one son who turns 4 years old on Sunday. Jim was converted and united with the Baptist Church in Canadian. He was superintendent of the Sunday school in his community, at the time of his death.

Although a man who looked in perfect health, Jim had not been in good health for several years. He always wore a smile and was cheerful regardless of what might be troubling his mind.

Besides his wife and son, Mr. WILLIAMS is survived by a brother, George, living near him in Lipscomb county, his step-mother, Mrs. WILLIAMS of Canadian; a step-sister, Mrs. Lottie PHILLIPS; two half-brothers, Clarence and Ralph and an uncle, John WILLIAMS of Shattuck Oklahoma.
