06/24/20 BRYAN J. J. 1872 6 15 1920 CITY In Memorial: On Tuesday, the 15th, death laid its icy fingers on J.J.Bryan and whispered the message to him to come cross the river and rest under the shade of the trees. J.J.Bryan had been a sufferer for some time past and after spending over five months in the Baptist hospital in Memphis went to Chicago where he consulted with the best physicians that could be found. After a careful diagnosis of his case he was told that they could do nothing for him, and that he had better put his house in order. Returning from Chicago, he was too weak to stand the trip to his brother's home at Bryanville, and stopped at the home of Mrs.Mollie Hood where he remained until the end came. He was a member of the Methodist church, 48 years of age, of which 22 he had dwelt in the happiness with the one whom he leaves to mourn his end though she mourns not as one without hope. He was the brother of our esteemed county man W.W.Bryan. The funeral services were conducted by Rev.J.H.O'Bryant of the Methodist church on Wednesday, the 16th of June, and were impressive in the extreme. The body was laid to rest in Forrest City Cemetery and was followed by an immense concourse of friends and relatives.
