In Memoriam
James David Roy Abernathy

Died, December 29, 1900, Roy Abernathy, son of J.B. and Stella M. Abernathy, aged 3 years, 4 month, and 3 days. Roy was a bright and charming boy, the pride of his parents and the light of the home. His death cast a pall of sadness over that home which lost its brightest jewel when he was taken. But their loss is lightened by the thought of Roy's great gain and hence none can begrudge him his heavenly home.

{Submitter comment: death record at courthouse states buried at Big Grove with name as James David Roy Abernathy, no record of burial with cemetery records.}
