Mr. Champ Shumate, of Paint Lick, died Feb. 1st, 1905. He was born on the Ben Slavin place in this, Garrard county, Sept. 2nd, 1825, and was therefore in his eightieth year. He lived on the place where he was born u ntil his marriage after which he moved to Rockcastle County. After some years he moved back to his old home, the Slavin place, on Frog Branch creek. His first wife, who was Marth (sic) McClary having died, he married the second time, Lizzie Yeakey, who survives him. He leaves three children, all of whom were by his first marriage. Shortly after his second marriage, about 22 years ago, he sold his farm and moved to Paint Lick and engaged in merchandising. After seven years he gave up the business and retired to the comfortable home where he spent the remainder of his days.

For thirty years he was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church at Manse. Of recent years he has been unable to attend church which he delighted to do when he was able. He was a modest, unassuming man of good christian character, quiet and unpretending in his manner. He was a man of stong convictions and a firm and faithful friend. Most of his life was spent in Paint Lick, where he had many friends and acquaintances. He leaves three children, a widow and host of friends to mourn his loss. Everything was done for him that kind friends could do but, for many years he had been afflicted with kidney disease, which in the end caused his death. Revs D E Friarson and C S Young conducted funeral services at his home in the presence of a large and sympatizing (sic) crowd. His remains were laid to rest in the Paint Lick Cemetery.
