IN MEMORIAM - James H. Lockwood
James H. Lockwood died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fred H. Hoppe, in this city, Sunday morning of this week. Mr. Lockwood came here from Apalachicola, Fla., a short time ago and expected to make his home with his daughter, but the summons came from his Heavenly home and he answered the call. The funeral was from the house Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock and was conducted by Rev. Woodward, of the Methodist church, and attended by many friends of the family. The interment was in Odd Fellows cemetery south of the city. Mr. Lockwood was born in New York City, July 4, 1828, and early in life moved to Canada, where he later married Harriet Wickwire. Of the union two children, Mrs. Hoppe and W.A. Lockwood, of St. Louis, survive. His good wife died in Georgia in 1862 and in 1867 he moved to Missouri, and in 1875 he was married to Helen Corey, who died in Florida, May 11, 1904. Mr. Lockwood was a refined and cultured Christian gentleman and the entire community joins in sympathy to Mrs. Hoppe in her bereavement.
