FIRST BAPTIST Regular services at the First Baptist church by the pastor, Sun day. Jordon. The citizens were greatly shocked to learn of the sudden death of C O. Jordon Saturday morning. News had been received from friends nearby the homestead that Mr. Jordon had been taken ill in the night and was apparently relieved. After his wife and sisters-in-law did all they could a heavy sleep came over him and he remained in 1 that condition when Dr. McNutt, ' who was not able to go when at first summoned, arrived. He soon discovered that what was supposed ly a deep sleep was really his "death !8leep He had evident,y passed avay someume Deiore me pnysician had arrived, with those near and dear unto him anxiously awaiting . by his bedside ready on the instant to minister to his want?, and we 'can readily imagine the terrible I shock to his loved ones to learn i that husband and brother was no 1 more. The funeral was held from the historic church of the parish of St Jude's Sunday afternoon. The Rec tor and Choir, preceded by the Cross bearer, met the funeral cor tege at the entrance of the church yard, the procession passing up the aisle during which the Chant of the Burial office was sung by the officiating Priest and choir antipho nally. The sermon was on "The Resur rection" devoid of any personal re marks relating to the deceased. Specially selected hymns by the family were sung by choir and con gregation, after "Nunc Dimittis" had been chanted, the remainder of the services held at the grave where a large concourse of relatives and friends had assembled to pay their last tribute of reapect to him who had ever been a loyal citizen and a true friend. Charles O. Jordon had been a veteran of the Civil war in the Con federate army serving as 3rd Lieu tenant in the Alleghany Battery of the Stonewall Brigade and had experienced everything that a war rior is called upon to do. He fought in all the memorable battles from Bull Run to Appomattox. He came to Monroe in the spring of 1669 and afterwards married Miss Alice McCiintic, the youngest daughter of Dr. Moses McClintic, and lived on the old homestead from that time until his death. Mr. Jordon will ever be remem bered as a faithful, industrious, painstaking and lving member of his family and the community in which he lived, and his cheerful and generous disposition will be sadly missed from those who have day by day been with him in his going in and out among them.
