James Franklin Daniels Obituary

Clark County Clipper, February 7, 1901


James Franklin Daniels was born in Clay county, Indiana, July 22, 1867; departed this life at the home of his parents in Clark county, Kansas at 11:30 o'clock Sunday February the 3rd, 1901.  Age 33 years, 6 months and 11 days. 

The people of the community were surprised and pained to learn last Sunday that James Daniels had passed away that morning.  Whilst he had been under the care of the doctors for several weeks, yet the report was current that there was not much the matter with him and that the doctor thought he would be up in a short time, and his sudden demise was wholly unexpected.

The funeral was held from the family home west of town Monday morning, Rev. W. L. Roberts of the Presbyterian Church preaching the sermon, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at Ashland. 

Deceased was second son of Isiah and N. E. Daniels, who are numbered amongst the most highly respected families of this community, and was a favorite son; as he had been with his parents all his life.

Jim was a young man of the most exemplary habits, sober, honest and industrious.  Whatever his environs, he never neglected his brotherly devotion to his sisters who confided in him implicitly nor obtained a favor too precious to contribute to the happiness of a doting father and mother.  No one can take the place of Jim in the hearts of his parents and sisters, for they had learned to lean on the strong arm of Jim in all trials of adversity.

The entire community will deeply sympathize with the bereaved family, for their affliction is great.
