The family received a dispatch from Abilene, Texas, Sunday, stating that J. Collins Gentry had been attacked by hemorrhage that morning and died very suddenly. As his health had recently been much better than usual the news was a great shock and his aged mother and brothers and sister, who have of late been "passing under the rod" of affliction by the death of numerous relatives and friends. Mr. Gentry was a warm hearted, generous and true gentleman, who had scores of friends here, who will sorrow at his untimely demise and sympathize deeply with those more nearly afflicted. his wife, who was Miss Belle Shumate, of Garrard, with several children, survives him and suffer the loss of a loving husband and father.
