J C Price Passes Away. The grim Reaper visited the Chambliss Community Friday night and took away "Uncle Johnnie" Price an aged citizen who had resided in that community for the past 40 years. "Uncle Johnnie" was about 80 years of age. He moved to Texas with his parents Mr. & Mrs. Fenny Price, when about 30 years of age, coming to this state from Albany, Missouri. Mr Price's companion was called to her reward about for (sic) or five ago (sic). He had lived with his children since that time. Mr price was a devoted member of the Baptist church, spending the latter part of his life for God and the betterment of his fellow citizens. He served through the war, and was a brave soldier, fighting for what he thought to be just and right. The death of this good Christian genteleman has caused his large circle of friedns to bow their heads in grief, and sympathize with his children who are left to mourn his death. He is survived by a son and a daughter, George Price of Southern Texas, and Mrs Abe Walker of this city. The interment took place at the Chambliss cemetery this afternoon.

The editors of these papers extend condolence to the bereaved children in the death of their honored old father.
