J.L. Barnett died at his home at Arden Wednesday morning at the age of 63 years, after an illness of several days duration.
Mr. Barnett formally resided in Foreman and has many friends here who will regret to learn of his death. He was born in Hartford, Kentucky, but moved to Foreman about nine years ago which place he made his home until a short time ago, moving to Arden after being married to Mrs Brown of that place.
He leaves five children to mourn his death, two of whom were at his bedside when death came, S.E. Barnett, of Idabel Oklahoma, and Mrs R. M. Thornberry, of Owensboro, Kentucky, a daughter. Three children who reside at Louisville, Kentucky, did not arrive.
The remains were interred at Marvin cemetery Wednesday afternoon, but will be taken up after and removed to the family burial ground in Kentucky.
The Sun extends sympathy to the bereaved.
His headstone (placed in Hartford Kentucky cemetery) says he is buried near Foreman.
